No Approver Found Error For AME Requisitions When Position Has No Holders (Doc ID 1472570.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
GET_NEXT_APPROVER_AME
INVALID_APPROVER

Symptoms

When the next position in the Positions hierarchy has no holder (i.e. no employee has been assigned to the position) the following error occurs:

ERROR
-----------------------
No approver found

However, it is expected that the workflow continues to the next level in the Position hierarchy instead of erroring out.

This error occurs only when AME is used to approve Requisitions.

If AME is not used the Requisition approval flow continues to the next position in the Positions hierarchy without the No Approver Found issue
