Symptom

Cause

System will not create purchase orders automatically from the purchase request which were created through an external application like web service. The reason behind is; Buyer wants to enter the source of supply - Supplier, club few purchase requests in to one order for the same supplier, Delivery Date etc. and then create purchase order with multiple line items. Hence the flexibility has been given to buyer responsible to process purchase requests and then create orders manually.

Resolution

This is a standard behavior for purchase requests which were created through external application. (Web service)
