Journal Approval Allows Preparer to Approve Journal After Re-assignment (Doc ID 2332494.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 25, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Journal approval is used integrated with Approvals Management Engine (AME). User preparing the journal is not allowed to approve his own journal. However if the supervisor delegates back to the preparer, he is able to approve the journal disregarding other setups that do not allow this.

The process works fine if delegation points out to other user than the preparer.

Expected the limitation for preparer to approve own journals to apply in all cases.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. GL Responsibility > create a journal by User1
2. Submit for approval
3. User2 delegates back to User1
4. User1 is now able to approve and post the journal
