Applies to:

Oracle Internet Expenses - Version 12.2.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


(i) Oracle Approvals Management (AME) is setup for use with the iExpense Application
(ii) expense reports were submitted in R12.1.3
(iii) these R12.1.3 expense reports were still in workflow when the instance was upgraded to R12.2.7
(iv) as part of the upgrade to R12.2.7 FND user names were changed - Single Sign On (SS) was being implemented and username greater than 8 characters were truncated
(ie. this affected expense report preparer and approver usernames)
(v) some of these R12.1.3 reports were failing in the 'AME Expense Report Approval Notification'
(vi) normally, these type of failures could be resolved by using Workflow Admin and retrying
(vii) but, when the Workflow Admin retried the failing activity, they encountered an error
"Oracle.apps.fnd.framework.OAException: Java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Failed to get sdecurity predicate for null"

Workflow Admin expects to be able to retry the failing activity
