Symptoms

 On PO auto Source process, on the run control page, click on the Select Individual Processes link. (Main Menu: Purchasing>Purchase Orders>Stage/Source Requests>PO Auto Sourcing)

 Then on the Process tab, in the Selection Criteria Defaults, if you fill in the Buyer ID field and then later you want to remove it, the system will not allow the Save action if a Buyer ID is not entered.

 The system generates the following error message, although the Buyer ID field is not marked as a required field:

"Buyer ID is required (10209, 32)

 Buyer ID is required for the Single Value Selection Options."


If you create a new run control, then you enter on the Select Individual Processes and you do not enter the Buyer ID value at all in the Selection Criteria Defaults, in this case we can fill in only BU, Requester values etc and the system lets us save the run control page without the Buyer ID value.
So the same run control page allows us to save when only having BU, Requisition id and Requester in the initial step without a buyer entered.
