In Oracle ERP Cloud, Self-Service Procurement provides the capability to request items/services using internal catalogs, to browse and shop with external suppliers, approve requests and create receipts.

As self-service implies, the user is empowered to perform all transactions related to purchase requests and subsequent receipts. ‘My Receipts’ work area is enables user to view information to view and manage receipts specific to the user.

For those organizations that prefer to use a centralized receiving function without access to Inventory’s ‘Receive Expected Shipments’ task, the seeded roles are not enabled with sufficient privileges in Oracle Fusion Cloud

Understanding seeded roles.

Role Description Comments
Procurement Preparer Prepares requisitions and receipts on behalf of others. Limited access to records where user is preparer Seeded role for general user access to create Catalog or Non-Catalog Requests. Does not allow Enter Requisition Line task
Procurement Requester Prepares requisitions and receipts for themselves. Seeded role for general user access to create Catalog or Non-Catalog Requests. Does not allow Enter Requisition Line task
Advanced Procurement Requester Prepares requisitions on behalf of others and has access to advanced requisition creation and receipt permissions. Combines Preparer and Requester. Seeded role for advanced users that allows Enter Requisition Line task. This task provides support for user selected Blanket or Contract Agreement.

For each role, the seeded My Receipts search form requires the entry of either the Requester or Entered By (Preparer) person and only returns records related to that person. The process design intends for the Requester or Preparer to create receipt transactions for their own orders. The search form does NOT allow the user to search with only the Purchase Order or Transfer Order that would be typical for a central receiving function and cannot access Orders they did not initiate.
