    Supplier is approved even if notification of approval is rejected by approver
    Summary:
    Supplier is approved even if notification of approval is rejected by approver
    Content:

    Hi,

    for our internal supplier registration approval flow:  if one of the approvers rejects the approval notification, the system still says that the supplier has been approved. Is this happening due to some option in the BPM worklist?

    See the picture for more information. Outcome = rejected, approval status = approved.

      Please share the screen shot for BPM approval task configuration (if you are using BPM to maintain the approval rules).

      Hi Piyush,

      I think I solved it already, the seperate rule (promote to spend) was on always approve. I think it approved everything even if you rejected it.

    • Piyush Singh

      That is not right. Suggest you:

      1. Review the whitepaper 'Setting up Document Approvals Oracle Fusion Procurement', and

      2. Use the approval tasks through FSM (covered in the whitepaper) to author approval rules and not using tasks through BPM worklist.

      Hope this clarifies.

      with FSM there is a whole lot of things you cannot do (settings, esclation, epxire rules etc.) or is there somewhere else you can do that besides the bpm worklist?

      • Piyush Singh

        Agree, FSM task offers a subset of features supported using BPM but, supports many default setup based upon our analysis. This also offers a much simpler and user friendly solution to meet most of your approval needs.

        The configuration that you do through FSM setup is copied to the BPM only. If there are changes that you need to do to like, escalation policies etc. you can do it in the BPM. But suggest you to utilize the FSM task to configure approval rules and then configure the extra policies using BPM.

        Hope this clarifies.

          Yes I understand. Thank you for your information. If I may ask one more question: can you autoapprove a notification if a certain assignee has not replied in 48rs? If i need to create another post for that, please let me know. Thank you
