eProcurement > Administer Procurement

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Supplier Properties page.

Supplier Properties page

Supplier properties store the details of how a particular supplier interacts with a direct connect method and identifies some of the information that the supplier expects to be sent in the XML. You can also enter a default value for each field on the requisition line for this particular supplier's direct connect items.

You can enter default information for items that are returned from the direct connect supplier on this page. This default value only applies to a field if the supplier sends a null value for that field in the service operation passed back to PeopleSoft; otherwise, the supplier's value overrides the defaults.

To check if the marketplace service is running you have to add a property PING_URL to the supplier properties list. This property will check against the URL given as Property Value to validate if the particular marketplace exists. Adding this property is optional. Another property FILE_STATUS_URL has to be added manually to check the status of item/supplier files that are uploaded to the marketplace. If the property is not added or if the marketplace is down then user will be alerted by a warning message about the file status not being checked.
