3232084 - GB-20204: Non-catalog requests with the wrong commodity code


Previously, if users created a non-catalog request for a service but added a material item, they could submit the request, but they couldn't submit a purchase order. 
In the following figure, a material item is chosen for a service-based non-catalog request. 

Users couldn't submit a purchase order for the request because the Item category field in the Others section didn't match the type of item ordered. The user was trying to submit a purchase order for a material item, but the commodity code associated to the Item category field was for a service, as shown in the following figure. 

Now, you can ensure that non-catalog requests are submitted using the correct commodity code. If users accidently submit a service-based request for a material item, the Item Category field updates to material upon checkout.
