R12: AME: First responder Wins Method Not Effective With Two Approval Groups In Sequence (Doc ID 1532248.1)

Last updated on APRIL 28, 2023

Applies to:

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


When using voting method as "First Responder Wins" (or "Beat By First Responder") and one of the approver approves, then AME does NOT close the notification to the other users of the current approval group, before notifying the users of the next approval group.
Consider the following simple scenario:

The Expected Behavior:

Group 1 is set to "First Responder Wins" so we expect the notifications of all approvers of Group 1 to be Closed / Cancelled, except for BBB who approved.
After applying <patch 8490741:R12.OIE.B>, the notifications for all other approvers of the same group get cancelled if one approver responds as expected but that only works fine if the "First Responder Wins" group is the final level and has no following approval group after it.  In our example, if approver Group 2 is NOT there, then things work fine and we do not face the 2 issues mentioned above).


This issue occurs even if the <patch 8490741:R12.OIE.B> has been applied.
