Do you need help in understanding the concepts or how to setup the Approval Management Engine (AME) for requisition approvals? See the new diagnostic Note 1437183.1 'AME : How to Diagnose Issues With the Default Approver List in Purchasing When Using Approvals Management'.
AME is designed to generate the approval list according to the conditions and rules you define in the setup. This troubleshooting guide will help you understand how AME builds the default approval list for Purchasing and help users find solutions for scenarios where the approval list fails to be generated.
Follow along with the logical steps for troubleshooting. The note first reviews how to generate the AME Setup report. For example in the note we see a fragment of the setup report. Notice it has different sections for each one of the setup categories including attributes, conditions, rules, action types, approval groups etc.
How the default approval list is built in AME is then reviewed, followed by the logical steps for diagnosing issues. The diagnostic steps include how to run the Test Workbench, as well as how to obtain valuable debug and exception information. Then follow along using the steps to build a simple test case to sharpen your understanding.
