GLXJEENT: Why Does the Journal Batch Show Original Approver Instead of Actual Approver Designated by Vacation Rule? (Doc ID 2343521.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2022

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


NOTE: In the images below and/or the attached document, user details / company name / address / email / telephone number represent a fictitious sample (based upon made up data used in the Oracle Demo Vision instance).  Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.

  Employee A has supervisor B.
  Employee A enters a manual journal and sends it for approval to supervisor B.

  However, supervisor B is unavailable and has defined a vacation rule with the option of 'Transfer Notification Ownership' to director C.
  Director C approves the journal.

  When reviewing the journal, field approver_employee_id in gl_je_batches reflects supervisor B (the originally selected approver) not director C (who actually approved the journal).

Based on the scenario above, the following questions are addressed:

1. Why is supervisor B stored in the batch as the person who approved the journal?
    A vacation rule with option 'Transfer Notification Ownership' to director C was created and director C actually approved the journal.
    It is expected director C would be stored in the batch as the approver.

2. Is there any method to determine who actually approved the journal when using a vacation rule?
