You must have a project template for creating sourcing requests. The out-of-the-box sourcing request template can only be used to create sourcing requests that are initiated through the RFQ and Award Integration with SAP Ariba Sourcing feature.
You can create sourcing request templates that can be used for creating sourcing request projects from the dashboard. The template used to create a sourcing request from the dashboard must meet the following requirements:
- The value of Origin field must be Ariba.
- The template must not have the visibility condition (Origin) is equal to (External) (IsExternalOrigincondition). This condition is present in the template for sourcing requests created using the SAP ERP integration feature.
