Workflow Notification Mailer Setup in Oracle Apps R12/12i

May 16th, 2021, posted in Oracle EBS Application
Share

On popular demand from readers, I am going to cover Workflow Notification Mailer in Oracle Applications R12/12i.
Workflow notification mailer setup in R12 is similar to 11i ( In both release 11i (OWF.H and higher in 11i) & R12 are Java Mailer)
* Previous version of Notification Mailer in 11i was based on C also called as C Mailer

Things To Note :
1. You use Oracle Application Manager (OAM) to configure Workflow Notification Mailer.
2. There are two kind of Notification (Outbound & Inbound) in Workflow Mailer
3. For Outbound Notification, CM (Concurrent Manager) node should be able to connect to SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server/relay.
4. For Inbound Notification (Optional), CM node should be able to connect to IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) Server.
5. Log file for Workflow Mailer Notification are at $APPLCSF/$APPLLOG/FNDC*.txt
6. Workflow Notification Mailer in background run as Concurrent Manager (Workflow Mailer ServiceWorkflow Agent Listener Service)
7. If you don’t wish to send mail notification to end user (from Dev/Test instance) then configure Test Address in configuration screen.


Step to configure Workflow Notification Mailer :

1. Login to Apps R12 with System Administrator Reponsibility
2. under Workflow : Oracle Applications Manager click on Workflow Manager

If this is first time you are configuring Workflow Notification Mailer in Oracle Apps R12/12i you will see Notification Mailers as unavailable as shown in screenshot

Click on Notification Mailers

In next screen (as shown below, click on Edit Button)

oracle apps,Oracle dba,Oracle application,oracle mail setup.oracle apps dba,

Here you have option to select Inbound notification setup or Just outgoing Notification Setup.

Provide SMTP Server Name (ensure that CM node should be able to connect to SMTP Server or SMTP Relay)

Uncheck Inbound Processing (from above screen), if you don’t wish to configure Inbound Notification Mailer.

If you wish to configure Inbound Notification as well then ensure IMAP Server should be configured with a valid user (create InboxProcessed Discard folder for this User)

Click on Apply button to finish configuration, at this stage Notification Mailer will test SMTP Server & IMAP Server connectivity.

For Advanced setup, click on Advanced at top right of configuration screen.

Change Allowed In Items Primary UOM in Oracle EBS R12.2.9 And Higher Versions

Allowed to change Item’s Primary UOM in Oracle EBS R12.2.9 and higher versions

 

Prior to Oracle EBS R12.2.9, Item’s Primary Unit Of Measure(UOM) can be selected only at the time of item creation and cannot be updated once the item is saved.

There is a new feature added in Oracle EBS 12.2.9 latest version, where it is allowed change item’s primary UOM after the item is created When no transactions exist like material transactions, Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, Work Orders, Onhand etc.,

Item’s UOM won’t be updated if there are transactions or related records exists. This is to Maintain data Integrity and avoid corruption.

  1. Creating “VM TEST” master item with primary uom as Each.

2. Extending “VM TEST” item to M1 inventory org.

oracle application,oracle ebs,oracle master item,oracle inventory master items,oracle apps dba

3. Query “VM TEST” item in M1 inventory org.

oracle application,oracle ebs,oracle master item,oracle inventory master items,oracle apps dba

Initially the item is created with primary UOM as “Each”. This item is newly created and there are no transactions exist.

4. Change primary uom from EACH to EA in the master item form ( primary UOM is master controlled item attribute) -> A concurrent request will be submitted when UOM is changed and saved.

5. It runs “EGO Spreadsheet Java Concurrent Program” process and completes normal when the UOM is changed.

Note: The concurrent program will have error like below if there are any transactions exists.

MESSAGE NAME: INV_UOM_CANNOT_UPDATE
ERROR MESSAGE : You cannot update UOM field when the inventory transactions exist in current or one of child orgs.

6. Re-Query “VM TEST” in the organization items form for M1 inventory org. You can see that primary UOM is changed to EA
