What is the workflow name to create purchase order automatically?
Workflow is integrated with Oracle Purchasing and it is possible to automatically create standard purchase order or
blanket releases off of approved Req lines. The workflow is called PO Create documents. Workflow builder can
be used to alter PO Create Documents as per business requirements.
PO Create Documents is made up of several processes which are group of functions. Each function/process can be modified.
For Each approved req lines, PO Create Documents workflow is triggered or called. This creates a new document and PO
Approval Workflow is also called to approve this document.

The workflow begins automatic document creation if you’ve kept the item
attribute Is Automatic Creation Allowed? set to Y for Yes, if source documents are
associated with the requisition lines, and you have properly set up sourcing rules.

The document type created by PO Create Documents workflow depends on source document associated with requisition lines.

If the source document for req line is a quotation then a standard PO is created.
If the source document is a blanket purchase agreement, a release is created.
