Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Go to Purchase Requests view
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Request 81
  4. Select Edit and navigate to document flow
  5. No sourcing request created


You have scoped the below question in the Business Configuration work center under scoping questions - Do you want to create sourcing requests from purchase requests to use as proposals in RFx documents?
The Sourcing Requests from Purchase Requests business option enables your purchasing department to receive proposals based on purchase requests with no source of supply to create RFx documents. So this business option is relevant if you create RFx documents that are based on purchase requests with no source of supply.

Hence no sourcing requested separately. If you check the document flow of purchase request, the status appears as RFQRequest Created.


If you don't want system to create RFQRequest, you can descope this question from the below steps; 

  1. Go to the business configuration work center
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects and View Active scope
  3. Navigate to Scoping questions and go to the element Sourcing
  4. Select Sourcing and Contracting and Sourcing Requests 
  5. De-scope the question and Finish the scoping activity
