Information Templates in Purchasing

Oracle iProcurement 11i uses information templates to pass necessary order processing information to suppliers. We can set up information templates to gather additional information when an information template is assigned to a category or item, iProcurement prompts users to provide the information specified in the template

To define an information template:

  • Navigate to the Define Information Template window by using the Oracle Purchasing menu,

Setup –> Information Templates.


  • Enter an attribute name and description. The attribute name is the actual
    field prompt that is displayed in iProcurement.
  • Optionally, enter a default value to automatically appear in the field.
  • Indicate whether the field is mandatory for iProcurement 11i users.
    If the field is mandatory, users will be prompted to enter a value in the field
    before proceeding to complete the requisition.
  • Indicate whether to activate the attribute to actually display on Self Service purchasing pages. 

In certain circumstances, you may want to define an attribute, but delay enabling it for display to iProcurement users 21.jpg

  1. Hi,
    thank you for sharing your knowledge. The feature of Information Templates is new for me.

    I have a question. Is there a way to enable this feature in regular, form based Oracle Purchasing ?
