AME: FYI Notifications Treated As An Approval Notification

(Doc ID 1466096.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Expenses - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

EMP_1 submits an expense report on the behalf of EMP_2
As soon as EMP_2 approves as an individual his expense report filled by
EMP_1, it goes to System Administrator with an error:
 
 
  "The individual seeking reimbursement for this expense report is also defined as the approver of the expense report. An individual cannot approve
  his or her own expense report. The problem could occur either because the approval notification was improperly reassigned, or because the individual
  is defined in his or her own approval hierarchy in Oracle Human Resources."
 
It occurs when AME is used in combination with a FYI rule which sends a FYI
notification to EMP_2 before the supervisor is notified.
 
  Basically the expectation is as follow:
  ---------------------------------------
  EMP_1 submits  the ER
  EMP_2 approves as an individual
  AME rule sends a FYI Notification to EMP_2
  AME rule sends an approval Notification to the supervisor of EMP_2
 
The AME attribute ALLOW_REQUESTOR_APPROVAL is set to false, which is consistent because FYI is not an approval.
