Last updated on MAY 10, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When a Buyer, VP2, creates a PO with Copy From Requisition option, the search returns requisition items linked with buyer, VP1, that is not defined in the ‘Buyers User Authorization For’ list for the user-buyer that creates the PO.

With other words, if the User VP1 is not defined in the ‘Buyers User Authorization For’ list for User VP2, the system allows to search and to copy requisition lines in the VP2’s purchase order.

The requisition is created by a user-requestor, POS1, that is not in a relationship with any of the user-buyers, VP1 and VP2.
The Line 1 with item 10000 linked to Buyer VP1 in the requisition, should not be copied in the PO when Buyer VP2 has not defined VP1 under ‘Buyers User Authorization For’ list.

 

Setup Steps:
---------------------
1. POS1 Requestor and user setup
Set Up Financials/Supply Chain> Product Related> Procurement Options> Purchasing> Requestor Setup
2. VP1 Buyer for item 10000
3. VP2 Buyer for item 10006

Replication Steps
---------------
POS1 requestor created a requisition for 2 items linked with deferent buyers, Item 10000 with VP1 and 10006 with VP2.

POS1 user is not linked with VP1 or VP2 at Requisition or PO authorization level.

VP1 and VP2 don’t have ‘Buyers User Authorization For’ defined for each other.

1. Login as POS1 and create requisition for items 10000 and 10006
Notice the buyers are defaulting for each item
2. Login as VP2 and create the PO
Create PO from requisition
Add Supplier SCM0000001 and go to Copy From Requisition
Search for BU = US001 and Buyer = VP2.
Notice the system returns only line 2 that is linked to VP2 buyer.
Search for BU = US001 and Buyer = VP1.
If search for buyer = VP1 the system returns the line 1 with item 10006 from requisition created reviously, too.

The VP2 buyer should not create PO from an item 10006 linked to a Buyer VP1 that is not attached to VP2’s ‘Buyers User Authorization For’ list.
