iAssets Transfers Which Do Not Identify an Approver Via Custom Lookup Get Final Approved Without Failing (Doc ID 3006217.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 29, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle iAssets - Version 12.2.10 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


iAssets transfers which do not have a valid approval setup via use of a custom process, such as a lookup, will be moved to Final Approved via the workflow once it is confirmed no approver is found.


1.  Create a custom approval group in the Approvals Management Engine

Two Transaction Types are seeded for iAssets in the Approvals Management Engine:

iAssets Receiving Approval Chain
iAssets Releasing Approval Chain

Developer will have done code updates to modify these to customize them to suit business purpose.

To view these:

Responsibility:  Approvals Management Business Analyst

Business Analyst Dashboard > Query your transaction type.

Follow the rules setup as in Note 2184684.1 - Employee Hierarchy Based Approval in iAssets.

2.  Implement the remaining setup as in Note 2184684.1 - Employee Hierarchy Based Approval in iAssets.

Responsiblity:  iAssets Setup

Follow screen shots in referenced document.

3. Enter a transfer whose values will not find an approver via the custom process. 

Responsibility:  iAssets User

Menu path:  Simple Search tab

a)  Find the Asset to be transferred, select it, and choose Add to Asset List.

b)  Choose Create Transfer Request.

c)  Complete Releasing and Receiving Approver Data, plus other changes as desired (account code, assigned employee are examples).

d) Submit the Transfer Request

Assuming no approver is found in the customized process, the workflow will put the transfer to Final Approved and make it available for posting.
