(Doc ID 2400618.1)

Last updated on MAY 21, 2018

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Using AME approval, in iProcurement, having 2 approver groups, both with "First responder wins", when one approver in the second group approves it, the Action history shows 2 approvers in the same group with result "Approved" even though the second approver of the group never approved it. This second approver is always the last one in the approver list (of a number like 10 approvers)

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect only one approver when document is approved

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. iProcurement > Requisitions tab > Requisitions > Shop: Stores   > Approval History for Requisition 2457
2. The Approval History shows that there are two approval actions   (seq 4 and seq 10) by different approvers
