Purchase Order (PO) Not Marked as Stockless Even Though Item/Supplier are Stockless (Doc ID 2888741.1)

Last updated on MARCH 06, 2023

Applies to:

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


For an item that is marked as stockless and a supplier that is marked as stockless (also priority 1 supplier) a PO is not getting created via PO Auto Source as stockless when the original Req has the priority 2 supplier (that is not stockless) assigned to it.



A) Go to Items -> Define Items and Attributes -> Define Item -> Purchasing Item Attributes Link -> Purchasing Controls tab and click on Stockless.

B) In the same navigation click on Item Supplier tab and the set up Item Supplier for Supplier with Priority 1 as stockless

C) Verify that Supplier with priority 2 is NOT set as Stockless


Steps to replicate issue

A) Create a Requisition using the item changed above and changing the supplier to the priority 2 supplier (Purchasing -> Requisitions -> Add/Update Requisitions)

B) Run PO Auto Source (Purchasing -> Purchase Orders -> Stage/Source Requests -> PO Auto Sourcing

C) Review PO to see the below (Purchasing -> Purchase Orders -> Add/Update POs)

   1) The priority 1 supplier was added to the PO even though the priority 2 supplier was added to the req (this is correct)

   2) See that stockless is NOT checked on even though the supplier chosen is set to stockless.

Please see replication steps here.
