Last updated on JUNE 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 11.5.10 to 12.2.4 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The aim of this document is to provide SQL that will return the purchasing approval rules, their groups and the Job and/or position that have been assigned those rules for a given Purchasing document type and subtype.

For each Purchasing Document that it subjected to Purchasing Approval Rules, the application uses the following Document Type and Document Subtype:

Document TypeDocument Subtype
REQUISITION INTERNAL or PURCHASE
PO STANDARD or PLANNED
PA CONTRACT or BLANKET
Release SCHEDULED or BLANKET

Approval Rules can be applied to each document type/subtype and only when those rules are meet will the document be approved:

Rule ObjectRequiredDB Object Value
Account Range Yes ACCOUNT_RANGE
Document Total Yes DOCUMENT_TOTAL
Item Category Range Optional ITEM_CATEGORY_RANGE
Item Range Optional ITEM_RANGE
Location Optional LOCATION

An Approval Group contains the rules (Purchasing's Approval Groups form - POXSTDCG)

The Approval Group is then assigned to the required documents that a Job (and Position if Positional Hierarchies are used) is expected to approve (Purchasing's Assign Approval Groups form - POXSTDPC)
