Folder Technology in Payables Invoice Workbench Allows Approval To Be Bypassed (Doc ID 1921397.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

The invoice workbench, in Payables, has folder technology on the invoice header.

Among the fields that can be shown or hidden, there is the field 'WF Approval Status'.

Folder technology is set up to allow the end user of Payables to select fields and sort information according to his/her own needs.

However, if client allow the user to use folder technology on the invoice header, then the user can show the 'WF Approval Status' field and manually update the value in this field to 'NOT REQUIRED'.

This will bypass the invoice approval workflow, even when it is enabled in Payables Options.
