Proxy Is Allowed To Approve Their Own Transaction When Using Delegation Framework (Doc ID 2822053.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 26, 2022

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN General Ledger - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After assigning a proxy user (user B) for another user (User A) and User B is a direct report of User A, when User B creates a transaction and submits it for approval , the approval request goes back to User B (who created the transaction) and allows User B to approve the transaction. User B should not be allowed to approve the transactions he creates.

STEPS
1) Create a delegation for User A where the proxy is User B and User B is also a direct report of User A.  (Click on Create Delegation Request Tile.)
2) Have User B create a transaction and submit for approval
3) See that approval request goes back to user B - and allows User B to approve his own transaction.

NOTE: When using the Alternate User ID functionality in lower versions of the software - it routes to the original approver (user A) and this is the way delegation should work.
