Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customers implementing the Invoice Approval workflow sometimes have complex approval rules to derive approvers based on their business requirements. Quite often, customers tend to derive the approver list using complex database queries which become difficult to maintain. Moreover, the feature of writing database queries will be deprecated in future releases as this option is not upgrade-safe and has poor performance. This white paper intends to describe a simplified solution that customers can adopt to build their invoice approval solution. The solution described in this white paper uses descriptive flexfields and Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) to build an alternate solution to derive the list of approvers, rather than using database queries directly in BPM.
