Regional Security Does Not Work With Multiple Supplier Pricing Locations (Doc ID 2579031.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2019

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM eProcurement - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

PeopleSoft 9.2 introduces the ability to control what items a requester has access to when searching in eProcurement via a combination of eProcurement role actions, item supplier region and SES item indexes. While this function works well if an item is differentiated between multiple suppliers within Item Supplier by Region, it fails when trying to differentiate between multiple supplier pricing locations.

Currently, if an item has a different supplier pricing location within item region supplier than that defined within the initial row of Purchasing – Item Supplier, then the item does not display at all to requester.  Rather than displaying a different price from the same supplier when the requester perform an item search, it doesn’t display the item at all.

In addition, for requesters whose region is tied to the primary supplier pricing location, they do see the item, but they can also see all of the supplier pricing locations, not just that defined within the item supplier region page. Try selecting those secondary pricing locations and then sourcing the req to PO. It doesn’t override to the primary supplier pricing location defined within item region supplier
