Cross-Product Procurement Enhancements

Integrate and Extend Procurement Using REST Services

In this update, Oracle Procurement Cloud delivers new and modified REST APIs to enable and simplify integration with external systems.

Purchasing

Establish Order Generation Schedules by Supplier Agreement

Consolidate requisition demand into fewer purchase orders by establishing order generation schedules for requisitions sourced to supplier agreements with similar ordering frequency conditions such as hourly, daily, and weekly.

Generate Separate Purchase Orders by Ship-To Location

Group requisitions by ship-to location during batch purchase order generation so that a separate purchase order is created for each location. 

Import Supplier Part Number and Auxiliary ID Updates for Blanket Purchase Agreement Lines

Update the supplier part number and auxiliary IDs of existing agreement lines using file-based data import (FBDI). You can now simplify your catalog content management by importing updates to existing lines rather than creating new lines as replacements.

Route Purchasing Documents for Approval Using Employment Assignment Attributes

Route purchasing documents for approval based on employment assignment attributes such as Job Name, Job Level, Grade, and Department of the document's buyer, requester, preparer, and submitter.

Store and Report on Purchasing Document Import Errors

Store import errors for purchasing documents that fail validation during the Purchasing Document Import process. You can then use Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher to create a report to identify failed records. After taking corrective actions, you can purge the import errors as part of the Purge Processed Open Interface Documents process.

Self Service Procurement

Search for Requisitions by Item or by Supplier on the Manage Requisitions Page

Search for requisitions that contain lines for a specific item. This makes it easy to confirm whether a requisition exists for a particular item without needing to know who ordered the item.

Similarly, on the Manage Requisitions page, you can also search for requisitions with lines sourced to a specific supplier without needing to know who created the requisitions.

Route Purchase Requisitions for Approval Using Grade and Department Attributes

Route purchase requisition document approvals for the worker types of Preparer and Requester using Department and Grade attributes.

Supplier Model

Configure Supplier Registration In-Process Notifications with Business Intelligence Publisher

Use Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher templates to configure the notifications that communicate the additional action needed by the registering company to complete their supplier registration. You can alter the notification content to meet your specific business requirements.

Navigate to Supplier Profile from Reports

Add links to supplier reports to navigate directly to the supplier profile.

Supplier Qualification Management

Duplicate Initiatives

Duplicate an initiative to reuse the same set of questionnaires and suppliers.
