Knowledge Article: Why am I seeing Supplier Sites with the same name to be available for selection a
SummaryWhy am I seeing repeat Supplier Site values in my choice list when selecting Sites across multiple BU's?
Support / Customers
The customer when creating a requisition and selecting a supplier site for a given supplier (say in the Enter Requisition Line flow or the Smart Form flow), the system is displaying multiple values with the same site name (in this specific instance, triplicate values). This causes the customer to think there is something missing or incorrect.
Analysis and Resolution:
Further triage revealed that these values belonged to 'Sourcing Only' sites.
'Sourcing Only' sites, and those of you that are familiar with our supplier configuration would know this, do not have a context of Site Assignment configurations. That means a site that belongs to a Procurement BU is simply available in all Requisitioning BU's that are serviced by the Procurement BU. This is different than other kinds of site constructs because it is at the Site Assignment level that we see Requisitioning BU as a filter to show the restricted set of values. As 'Sourcing Only' sites don't have this specific construct, it will show all sites for a given Procurement
