Purchase order: The Confirm button is not available

This post describes how to fix the issue when the confirm icon is not available in the Purchase order form in Dynamics AX 2012.

1. Situation

The status of the purchase order is “Draft”. The next step is to confirm the purchase order but the button “Confirm” is not available. No workflow is used in the purchase order process.


2. Setup

Access: Procurement and sourcing > Setup > Procurement and sourcing parameters

  • Go to the Procurement and sourcing parameters form
  • Unselect the change management for purchase order because if the change management is activated, you need to use the workflow.



3. Create a new PO

Access: P&S> Common > Purchase Orders > All purchases order

  • Create a new PO.
  • The confirmation button is now available.
