2869310 - Supplier is Missing in Purchase Request

Symptom

You have created a shopping cart and you have selected a preferred supplier in it.

However, when creating a purchase request linked to this shopping cart, the system ask you to "Assign Supplier to Purchase Request".

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

You have created a shopping cart ABC and you have selected a preferred supplier in it.

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Select the Purchase Requests view.
  3. Open the advance filter and select ABC under Shopping Cart ID.
  4. Click New > Purchase Request.
  5. A new window shows the Purchase Request 123 with the information message "Assign Supplier to Purchase Request".
  6. Click this information message.
  7. From here you can see that the preferred supplier selected in the shopping cart has not been forwarded in your purchase request.

Cause

 This is the expected system behavior.

Resolution

Once you have selected a preferred supplier in your shopping cart, you can chose different option in your purchase request.

You can click "Accept Preferred Supplier", you can select the "Quick Sourcing Request" option, but you can also select manually another supplier.

Selecting a preferred supplier in your shopping cart can be accepted from your purchase request but does not force this supplier to be automatically present on this purchase request.
