Unable To Set Privilege To Approve Any PO Amount

(Doc ID 2324345.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

As per "RMS_16.0_Security_Whitepaper" <Note:1585843.1> under Purchase Order Approval Limits section, the ORD_APPR_AMT on RTK_ROLE_PRIVS indicates the upper limit that the role is allowed to approve on an order. If ORD_APPR_AMT is not defined, then the role can approve any order amount. If a user is not assigned to a role on SEC_USER_ROLE, then it is assumed that they cannot approve an order.

Issue #1 - Data Loading is requiring PO Approval Amount to be populated
Issue #2 - If ORD_APPR_AMT is not populated then getting "not authorized" error instead of being able to approve any PO amount

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Login to RMS GUI.
2) Upload Role with "Order Approve Amt" set to via Foundation Data > Data Loading > Upload
                 Template Type: Security
                 Template: Role Privileges
3) Upload status will show "Processed with errors".
Error will be "Order limit amount must be entered." 

4) Assuming that issue #1 is fixed, try approving a PO while ORD_APPR_AMT is Null
5) Approval will show "You are not authorized to approve order." instead of being able to approve any PO amount
