2028281 - Bundle and Order Functionality is not Available for Automatic Creation of Purchase Orders


You want to use the automatic creation of purchase orders functionality to process the purchase request by using Bundle and Order with supplier.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Purchase Requests view.
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Requests for the same Supplier.

You are not able to see the system creating automatic Purchase Orders for all the above selected Purchase Requests.


Bundle purchase requests by supplier and create purchase order functionality is available only for manual creation of Purchase Orders. You can manually bundle multiple purchase requests with the same supplier and create a single purchase order. For items with a source of supply, the purchase order is created automatically by the system. When no source of supply is assigned to purchase requests, the buyer creates the purchase orders manually. In all other cases, the system creates purchase orders automatically. During this phase, system cannot use bundle and order functionality for automatic creation of Purchase Orders from purchase requests.


The system is working as designed.
