    Direct Order

    Shareef Mohammad Master

      Hi Experts,


      Could anyone please let me why Direct Orders are created ?


      In my Organization a user changed a Requisition and submitted it instead of EP number the system generated DO number in the back end when I check the supplier it is showing 'the supplier has been suspended'. Hence I want to know the why the Direct Order got created


      I t will be a great help.

          Different Ordering Methods are defined under Procure.OrderMethods in Parameters.table file. Direct orders are the ones which are directly sent to supplier and ASN order is a type of ERP order.


          To create an EP order, you need to configure it as ERP order.


          AribaDirectOrder is a subclass of AribaOrderMethod, intended for configurations where you will be transmitting orders directly to suppliers. It implements the following logic:

          - The line item is from a catalog (not ad hoc)

          - No line items exceed the specified item limit


          In the default configuration, there is no limit specified. In configurations that use AribaDirectOrder, you generally create a subclass, define your preferred limit in that subclass, and use that subclass as your order method.

          The default configuration includes a sample, LimitedDirectOrder, which illustrates how to subclass AribaDirectOrder with a specific limit. This sample is available in the directory sample/procure/misc.



          AribaERPOrderMethod extends AribaOrderMethod with additional logic appropriate for orders being sent to ERP systems, such as the logic of whether an item can be included on a CC:DO order.

          AribaERPOrderMethod reads the following parameters:

          - Application.Procure.AllowAdHocCarbonCopyDirectOrders, which is a Boolean that indicates whether non-catalog items can be accepted for CC:DO orders.


          In the default configuration, an order can be a CC:DO order if the following conditions hold:

          - The supplier and supplier location are not null

          - The supplier exists in the ERP partition

          - The supplier can be linked to an Ariba Network supplier

          - The item is a catalog item, or the parameter Application.Procure.AllowAdHocCarbonCopyDirectOrders is set to true


          You may find more details under procurement_admin.pdf file regarding Ordering Methods.
