Symptoms


Users With ePro Admin Role can see and approve the Pending Transactions even if the Approval Process of the ePro Admin Role is Inactive.

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Process definition for PO only has two admin roles: System Administrator and ePro buyer. (Enterprise Components>Approvals>Approval process setup>Process Id=PurchaseOrder).

2. VP1 user, having assigned these two roles, can see all pending transactions for PO. (PeopleTools>Security>User Profiles>Roles tab).

3. Remove these two roles from VP1, now the user can’t see any pending POs as expected. (Enterprise Components > Approvals > Approvals > Monitor Approvals).

4. Reassign the ePro Buyer role to VP1.

5. Now the user can see limited number of POs in Monitor Approval page as expected. (Enterprise Components > Approvals > Approvals > Monitor Approvals).

6. Now Inactivate the process definition that has admin role as ePro Buyer. (Main Menu>Enterprise Components>Approvals>Approval process setup>Process Id=PurchaseOrder).

7. Review pending POs again from Monitor Approval page. (Enterprise Components > Approvals > Approvals > Monitor Approvals).

8. The user can still see the pending POs, although the process definition is inactive. (Enterprise Components > Approvals > Approvals > Monitor Approvals).
