External Supplier Registration: Duplicate Supplier Check
How to identify a (possible) duplicate Supplier being registered for the Supplier Registration Approvers?
We are implementing the External Supplier Registration functionality and during testing the biggest concern was the inability of the system to flag a Registration as consisting of a Duplicate Supplier (name, VAT number,...).
The flow is as follows, how we see it:
- External Supplier user registers himself through the URL
- Approvers receive notification with all the details. It does not contain any indication the the Supplier already exists in current database
- Approvers approve the registration
- Registration is approved but Supplier Creation Step goes in Error: Duplicate Supplier (name or VAT Number for example)
