PO Workflow with linked production orders

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

   In AX2012 R 3...We use outsourced items to purchase reconditioning services. We use production orders to account for the cores returned to the reconditioner. The production order is linked to the PO and we are having issues with the PO workflow when we create these orders.

We have turned off workflow for the reconditioning vendors but want to use the workflow for all purchases

    That confirms what we have been finding, Thank You.

    Do you know of any work around that people have developed?

    Hi,

    I presume you have BOM line of Vendor type (subcontracting feature) -if so, then I can confirm that the PO workflow does not support subcontracting. These two features were not designed to work together. I don't remember the exact cause - but it is basically about Production Order being the "master" entity and trying to manage Purchase Order without being able to set it to "draft" and to submit it afterwards.

    Hope that helps, or at least saves some of your time...

    Regards

    Hi Tom,

    Can you explain what you mean with "workflow get hung up"? Have you checked the Workflow history form if the instances are stopped due to an error? Have you checked if the workflow message processing batch job is running correctly?

      We are seeing the workflow get hung up and cannot confirm the purchase order.
