Requestor Change Order Approval Does Not Default The Correct Approvers (Doc ID 1914453.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Using Purchasing, Version 12.1.3

Actual:
When a requisition change is submitted by the requester and if the original requisition did not require any approvals as the requester has enough approval limit, the requisition change is not pulling the approvers even though the change amount exceeds the approval amount assigned to the requester.

Expected:
The proper approvers should be fetched for the change request - as the change amount exceeds to the approval amount assigned to the requester.

Error:

Replication Steps:
1. Requisition submitted - approved.
2. Change request is engaged - exceeds the amount of the requester.
3. Change request is continuing to be approved - yet it should route.

 

_______________________________________________________________________

 

When doing a change order request from iProcurement, if the requester changes the amount over tolerance, it needs to be re-approved. 
However, it only brings in default approvers from the original requisition.  It does not bring forward any ad hoc approvers from the original requisition. 

It also does not bring additional approvers required for the change as it is expected it should.
