-- Problem Statement:
Using conditions with action type 'hr position levels' fail with the following error:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-20001: Oracle Approvals Management has found parallelization
configuration details. The context in which ame_api has been invoked does not support
ORA-06512: at "APPS.HR_DYNAMIC_APPROVAL_WEB", line 7743
ORA-06512: at line 1

at oracle.jdbc.dbaccess.DBError.throwSqlException(
at oracle.jdbc.ttc7.TTIoer.processError(
at oracle.jdbc.ttc7.Oall7.receive(

This error does not occur if the AME configuration variable allowAllApprovertypes is set to NO, but in that case, no approval is generated at all; the request will be auto-approved.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

1. The AME configuration variable allowAllApproverTypes is set to YES within the AME
Transaction Type 'Learning Management'

2. Create a rule with a condition based on the action type 'hr position' or 'hr position levels'

3. In OLM, enroll in a course that requires approval
After hitting Submit in the Review page, the error occurs

-- Business Impact:
Approval rules defined for OLM cannot be the same as those for HR, where the issue does not occur.
