Goal

How to use Supplier Site Code as a approval attribute, instead of Supplier Site ID?

Business requirement to build approval rules to prevent contract workers raising requisitions on their own companies.
These users have self-approval limits up to 50K and hence it is important that they restrict requisitions raised by these users are not raised on their own supply companies.
These companies provide other construction related services and hence are required to be in the system.

From control perspective they need a rule to ensure all self-approvals are not raised against requesters supply agency or company.

Problem is approval rules in requisition use supplier site id, this means that they have to include or repeat the same supplier site code in the rules.
There is a large number of such suppliers (around 50) and also from maintenance perspective this is not good.

All QS (Quantity Surveyor sites) suppliers sites are named as QS.
Approval rule checks that if employee job code = Quantity Surveyor and Supplier Site is != QS then allow auto approval.
Issue here is as BPM internally users internal supplier site id, they will have to include QS (supplier site name) 50+ times.

This approach is inconsistent with AP Invoice approvals where we can use supplier site code = Value to drive approvals.

Want to use supplier site code as a approval attribute, instead of supplier site id which is  unique (one for each supplier site)
and they need to write to rule to say if the supplier site code = QS then do Y.
