  4. Go to the Results tab.

Automated action to Release Purchase Proposals does not process the Purchase Proposals for cases where the Source of Supply is not valid. The automated action works for the proposals which can be processed further without manual intervention. If Source of Supply is not valid, the Background Job fails.


However, user can release the Purchase Proposal manually. System will allow if Source of Supply is not valid or even if there is no Source of Supply selected for the Purchase Proposal.
