2. Shopping Category Creation:


We will build one case. Based on that we will define the categories and then will do the
Category Mappings.
Case:

It's a Top Down approach.


First we will have a Top level category (Root Category) called "Browsing Category". Under that,
either we may have multiple child Browsing Categories or Shopping Categories.
First we should create the bottom level category called "Shopping Category"
Responsibility: iProcurement Catalog Administration
Navigation: iProcurement Administration: Home Page > Schema > Item Categories

Click "Create Category"

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Enter the Category Details

Note:
1. Category Key: Once we enter the value and save, we can't modify.
2. Category Name & Category Description: We can change the values even after save by clicking
"Update" button.
3. Category Key and Category Name values may be same.
Click "Apply"
Confirmation page will come.

Search the Category Name and check the newly created Category.

Now, we have successfully created the Shopping Category (iProcurement Category)


Now, we will see the "Category Hierarchy"

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

3. Category Hierarchy:
Root Category (Browsing Category) ===== > Outside Items
Child Category (Browsing Category) ===== > Direct Materials
Child Category (Shopping Category) ===== > Marketing Items

4. Purchasing Category Creation:


Now we will create one new item in Inventory module with new Purchasing Category and then
will map that Purchasing Category into our Shopping Category in iProcurement.
Lets create a new Purchasing Category called "Marketing Materials" in Inventory Module. To
create the new category, we need to add these new values into Value set. To find out that KFF
and Value Set, follow the below steps.
Step 1: Find out the "Default Category Set" for Purchasing
Navigation: Inventory > Setup > Items > Categories > Default Category Sets

Note down the category Set Name for the functional area "Purchasing"
Default Category Set for Purchasing = Purchasing
Step 2: Open the Category Set and note down the Flex Structure
Navigation: Inventory > Setup > Items > Categories > Category Sets

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Flex Structure = PO Item Category


Step 3: Find out the KFF Segments
Navigation: Inventory > Flexfields > Key > Segments
Query by
Application: Inventory Title : Item Categories
Once query retrieves the result, find out the Purchasing Flex Structure name "PO Item Category"

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Click on "Segments"

Note down the Value Set Names for both the Segments
Segment1 = Item Category (Value Set = PO Item Category)
Segment2 = Commodity (Value Set = Commodity)
Click on "Value Set" for the SEGMENT1 "Item Category" and check the Validation Type

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Note down the Validation Type. It's Independent.


Now, click the another segment "Commodity" and check for Value Set Validation Type.

It's "Dependent"
Step 4: Add the values into Value Set
Navigation: Inventory > Setup > Flexfields > Key > Values

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

Click Find

Add the new value "Marketing"

OracleApps88

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

Save

OracleApps88

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Note: PO Item Category value set Validation Type is "Independent". So, what ever the values we
are adding into this value set, all values will display. But, the "Commodity" value set is
"Dependent" value set. So, We need to define the Dependent value from previous value set and
then we need to add the new value.
Now, add the another value "Items" in the value set "Commodity"
While adding the new value in the Dependent Value Set, we need to mention the Independent
Value of the previous value set. In our case, the previous value set is PO Item Category. So, we
need to enter the value from that value set.

Add two new values like "Materials" and "Items"

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Now, create the Purchasing category "Marketing Materials" and "Marketing Items" and assign
it to Purchasing Category Set
Step 5: Create Purchasing Category Code
Navigation: Inventory > Setup > Items > Categories > Category Code

Click on "New"

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

Create a new Category Code like "Marketing.Items"

Save

OracleApps88

5. Category Mapping:
Query the newly created Purchasing Category and map it to Shopping Category.
In our case, the newly created Purchasing Category is "Marketing.Items" and Shopping
Category is "Marketing.Items"
Responsibility: iProcurement Catalog Administration
Navigation: Schema > Category Mapping

Query by either "Purchasing Category" name or "Shopping Category" name

Select the check box

Click on "Map"

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Query the Shopping Category "Marketing.Items"

Click "Apply"

Now, it's mapped.

7. Content Zone Creation:


Responsibility: iProcurement Catalog Administration
Navigation: Stores > Content Zones

Select the Action "Create Local Content Zone" option from the LOV and click on "Go"

Enter the Content Zone Name and Description. And select the "Suppliers", "Categories" and then
assign the "Content Zone Security"
Note for Suppliers:
Include items from all suppliers: Users can create the requisitions for all the items for all the
suppliers (It should have Blanket Purchase Agreements)
Include items from specific suppliers: Users can create the requisitions for the items which was
assigned to a specific supplier. If we enable this option then we need to enter that specific
supplier name (It should have Blanket Purchase Agreements)
Exclude items from specific suppliers: Users can not create the requisitions for the items which
was assigned to a specific supplier.
Exclude items that are sourced from suppliers: Users can not create the requisitions for the
items which was already sourced from the suppliers (ASL and Sourcing Rule).

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

Include items without suppliers: Without the Blanket Purchase Agreements, the users can
create the requisitions for all the items. As soon as we create the items with purchasing category
and if that purchasing category mapped into shopping category then we can raise a requisition.

In the above case, we have created the "Doyen Content Zone" and restricted by specific category
"Marketing.Items" and operating Unit "OM_Operating Unit". So, we can raise a requisitions for
all the items that belongs to "Marketing.Items" category without the Blanket Purchase
Agreements.
Click "Apply"

Get the confirmation page and our newly created content zone "Doyen Content Zone".

8. Information Template Creation:


You can set up information templates to gather additional information in Oracle iProcurement to
pass necessary order processing information to suppliers. When an information template is
assigned to a category or item, the application prompts requesters to provide the information
specified in the template when the item is added to the shopping cart. This information becomes
a line-level attachment to the requisition.
For example, you can implement information templates for items such as business cards that
require additional information (name, address, e-mail address, phone) from the requester. Oracle
iProcurement prompts for name, address, e-mail address, and phone number when you order
business cards. Each information template must be associated with an Oracle Purchasing item or
item category. If an information template is associated with an item category, all items belonging
to that category are also associated with the template.
Responsibility: Purchasing Super User
Navigation: Setup > Information Templates

Define the Template Name and enter all the other details

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

Created the "Doyen Information Template" and saved

OracleApps88

9. Smart Forms Creation:


Requesters can procure an item or service that is not found in the catalog. For these cases, they
can use a non-catalog request. The non-catalog request offers the ability to add an item or service
to the shopping cart based on a description of the item or service. Through the use of smart
forms, companies can conveniently control both the list of fields and whether a particular field is
enterable or pre-defined. For example, purchasing organizations can lock-down the purchasing
category for certain requests and thereby more accurately categorize spend. Similarly,
purchasing administrators can ensure spend is exclusively directed to preferred suppliers, and
default contract numbers achieve touchless buying.
The following figure shows the non-catalog request that requesters can enter. In the Item Type
field, requesters can enter goods billed by quantity, service billed by quantity, or goods or
services billed as an amount.

In addition to this standard non-catalog request, you can create different smart forms and assign
them to one or more stores.
Oracle iProcurement provides a default standard smart form. The catalog administrator can
create multiple additional smart forms. For example, you can create a Computer Services smart
form and an Office Services smart form. Once these smart forms are assigned to a store, both
appear for the requester to select from.
To use the single, standard smart form that Oracle iProcurement provides, you do not need to
perform any setup other than the profile options.
Responsibility: iProcurement Catalog Administration
Navigation: Stores > Smart Forms

Oracle iProcurement Setup and Process Training Manual

OracleApps88

10. Create Stores:


A store enables you to group content zones and smart forms into a single, searchable store. The
store should be easy for requesters to understand - for example, a store containing all computer
supplies or all office supplies.
