    Title:
    Unable to add condition 'category' in promote so spend authorized approval flow
    Summary:
    Unable to add condition 'category' in promote so spend authorized approval flow
    Content:

    We want to be able to add the condition 'category' in the spend authorization approval flow, but this option does not exist. I am also not able to add a user managed attribute. In the register (and internally register) supplier flow i am allowed to add the category condition, why the difference?

    Thank you

      Spend Authorization approval is modelled for a less complex approval policy and therefore you see lesser number of attribute options available to author approval rules. The rationale is that either the supplier already exists (prospective supplier) and have been involved with negotiation related communication or has just been reviewed and approved through registration process (which has a much robust approval setup including attributes like category and user defined attributes for approval rule authoring).

      Hope this clarifies.
