    Supplier Approval Role
    Which role is needed to do Supplier Approval



    We want to restrict the number of roles a users get. We are now having a supplier administrator user which be able to perform all supplier setup. We have giving the user the below roles:

    Supplier Manager
    Supplier Administrator
    Prospective Partner Administrator

    Supplier Self Service Administrator


    However with these roles the user cannot approve the supplier registration request.

    Which role is needed to do that?

      Supplier Registration approval is configurable through setup tasks 'Manage Supplier Registration Approvals' (for external requests) and 'Manage Internal Registration Approvals' (for internal requests). Please check the configuration to identify the list of approvers.

      Out of the box behavior is to route requests with prospective business relationship to supplier administrators and requests with spend authorized relationship to supplier managers. Supplier Administrators or Supplier Managers are users with these job roles and also configured as procurement agents with access to manage supplier action for the Procurement Business Unit in which supplier is getting registered.

      Hope this clarifies.
