AP9.2. User Without Supplier Authority To Approve Can Use Fluid Approval Page (Doc ID 3011727.1)

Last updated on MARCH 25, 2024

Applies to:

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


When the user doesn’t have authority to approve suppliers uses the Approval tile and goes to Suppliers section, he/she is able to approve the supplier and he/she is given a message that the transaction has been approved.

When checking on the “approved “supplier, it is not approved, so the user is given a false message that the approval has been done. Expectation is that the user should not be allowed to approve if it is not allowed in user preferences.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Access with user and check not to have the ability to approve suppliers on Setup Financial>Common Definition>User Preferences>Define User Preference> Procurement tab and Supplier Processing Authority.
  2. Go to Employee Self Service>Approvals Tile and choose 1 supplier to approve. ( e.g. supplier id 0000000049 ) .Notice that the user can approve it, which is incorrect as the user doesn’t have the right to approve.
  3. When checking the supplier I , it still has the unapproved status .
