PO Forwarded By User With Approval Authority Goes to User Without Authority But That User Can Approve (Doc ID 1614337.1)

Last updated on MARCH 23, 2015

Applies to:

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

Goal

User A has authority to Approve a Purchase Order (PO) but Forwards it to User B.  The PO then goes into Pre-Approved status. When User B submits the PO for Approval, it Approves rather than routes to next person in User B's hierarchy (User B does not have authority to Approve).

So how is User B able to approve this Pre-Approved PO?

Replication Steps:

1. User A (who has authority to approve the PO) approves and forwards PO to User B.
2. PO moves to Pre-approved status.
3. User B (who does not have authority to approve the PO) chooses approve.
4. PO moves to Approved status.
