3370015 - Items from Sales Kit not shown separately in Purchase Order


You are creating a New Purchase Order from Purchase Request linked with a Sales Kit and want only the products from Sales Kit to be shown in the Purchase Order, not the Kit itself.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Product Data work center.
  2. Go to Kit Item List view.
  3. Set Filter to Active Kit.
  4. Select Kit Z (Z being your chosen Kit).

Notice the Kit is made up of item A and item B. 

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to Purchase Requests view.
  3. Search and Select related Purchase Request.
  4. Click the "New Purchase Order" button.
  5. Notice Sales Kit Z is visible rather than just the two individual items A and B. 


As Item A and B are the two components that make up Sales Kit Z, once the Kit is removed so will the two items in Kit Z - this is expected system behaviour. 

As both Item A and B are both maintained in the Product Master Data as their own entities, once you remove Kit Z and manually enter the two items themselves, it does not register it is a part of Kit Z in the related Purchase Order - as Kit Z is no longer present in Purchase Order, rather just two separate items. 

Finally, as Kit Z appears in the related Sales Order alongside its two components, and the Purchase Order is a child document of the Sales Order, Kit Z must remain in the Purchase Order too for the link to maintained between Sales Order and Purchase Order. 


This is the expected system behaviour.
