This note provides a brief overview of

Symptoms

Problem Statement:

When the approver does not have access to the employee data for approval notification, the Approve and Reject buttons are visible.

Expect When the approver does not have access to the employee data for an approval notification, the Approve and Reject buttons should not be visible or should be hidden 

 

 

Steps to Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1.  Employee submits a SSHR transaction for approval

  2. Approver logins (in this case a delegated user with Vacation Rule) to the application.
     
  3.  Opens the notification directly from Oracle Application Homepage under Worklists
  4. Notification shows following Error (this is as per current security profile setup - which is expected)
    "You do not have access to the selected person's record. Please contact your Human Resources Administrator"
    But this notification also has "Approve", "Reject" button. (if the approver does not have access to the employee data due to security profile setup, then these buttons should not be visible).
  5. When the same approver opens the notification, from Manager Self-Service -> All Actions Awaiting Your Attention. The same error does not occur due to correct security context being set, here the "Approve" "Reject" button shows and approver can take action without any issues (which is expected).
