    Title:
    Tip on How to use BPM to write approval rules based on Grade and Department approval attributes
    Summary:
    What are the BPM attributes and the syntax used to write approval rules based on Grade and Department
    Content:

    Customers / Support

    There was a recent query regarding the BPM syntax to be used and the attribute names when using BPM to write approval rules for Requisitions based on Grade and Department. This query came from a customer in response to the following feature made available to customers in Update 19C:

    ROUTE PURCHASE REQUISITIONS FOR APPROVAL USING GRADE AND DEPARTMENT ATTRIBUTES

    You can now configure approval rules to route purchase requisition documents using these additional attributes.

    • Preparer Department
    • Preparer Grade
    • Requester Department
    • Requester Grade

    These attributes are part of the user's employment assignment in Oracle HCM Cloud and supported for the worker types: Preparer and Requester.

    STEPS TO ENABLE

    You must configure your approval rules to use the grade and department attributes if you want to take advantage of this feature. You can configure attributes for approval rules in a variety of ways. For details, see: Setting Up Document Approvals in Oracle Fusion Procurement.

    TIP:

    Listed below are the attributes and the dimensions from which they are supported:

    ReqHeaderDimension.preparerGradeCode
    ReqHeaderDimension.preparerDepartmentId
    ReqHeaderDimension.preparerDepartmentName
    ReqLineDimension.requesterGradeCode
    ReqLineDimension.requesterDepartmentId
    ReqLineDimension.requesterDepartmentName

    You will note that you can use the grade and / or department of the Requester or the Preparer. You will also note that Preparer is a header attribute while requester is a line level attribute because by design, a requisition can be created by a Preparer who consolidates requests originating from different individual requesters.
