Hi,

From the documentation, we get to know that the Mobile app should connect to Intranet URL only.
Will we able to connect from outside office, say via Internet DMZ url?

Thanks

Hi Vijay,

Do wee need separate lisence to use these applications?
Could you please provide any documenation for this licensing issue?

Thanks,
Mehabub

Ability to connect via DMZ is being certified. At this point we do not have the certification published.

Thanks
Vijay

Ability to integrate any Custom approval notifications to this app will be available in a future release. At this point only specific seeded approvals will be included into the app.

Thanks
Vijay

No additional license is required. You should be able to use this App with your existing EBS license.

Thanks
Vijay

Vijay,

So the app can only be used when access to the internal url is available? Or is the internal URL just needed for first time setup?

Hi Vijay,
Can you please let me know if in case we want to customise this prebuilt mobile approval app then what is the way to get the source code? Do we need to have a separate licensing for it apart from oracle E-Bushiness suit?
Thanks
Kavita

Kavita,

At this point Approvals app is not available for customization. Work is in progress to make EBS mobile apps available for limited customization and enterprise deployment. A separate license may not be needed when it is available. Please continue to monitor the blog for announcement when it is available.

Thanks
Vijay

Posted by Himanshu Rao on January 01, 2015 at 02:38 PM EST #

Hi Vijay,
We applied the pre requisite patches and also installed Oracle mobile approvals for ios in iphone but not all the options showing up.
I can only see pending approvals or past approvals.
I cannot see Requisitions, Purchase orders or expenses.
Please advise.
Thanks,

Ram,

Please refer to MOS Note 1642423.1 - Oracle Mobile Approvals for Oracle E-Business Suite Implementation Guide, Release 12.1 and Release 12.2

1) If there are Purchase Requisition lines that you can see on the self-service notification, then you should see them on the mobile app too. If you have problems seeing the data on the app, then it could be an issue with the REST service deployment on your EBS env. To troubleshoot please use Appendix C: Testing Web Service Requests on the Server

2) Please refer Appendix B.1: Troubleshooting Tips on the Mobile Client. The first item under Troubleshooting Tips provides the details for this issue.

Symptom: Users do not find additional lists that they can add to the menu of the Approvals app.

Root Cause and Solution: The issue could occur because those additional lists are not granted on the Oracle E-Business Suite side. Use the following steps to resolve the issue:

An administrator should first grant those lists on the Oracle E-Business Suite side:
a) Log in to Oracle E-Business Suite as a user with the Workflow Administrator Web Applications responsibility.
i) Select Worklist Data Services Manager and List Management from the navigation menu.
ii) Grant desired lists.
iii) Ensure that the Approvals app users are valid Oracle E-Business Suite users.
b) The app users then perform the following steps to add the lists to the menu of their apps:
i) Log in to Oracle Mobile Approvals for Oracle E-Business Suite.
ii) In the menu, select the Settings and Navigation Menu.
iii) Add the desired list to the navigation menu.

Steve,

Translations for Approvals are planned for a future release. Oracle's revenue recognition policy prevent us to disclose dates or estimations for future enhancements.

Thanks

Hi Vijay,

1. Unable to see PO lines in Mobile approvals APP
As advised by you, I checked the self service notification but upon clicking the notification I'm getting the below error.

oracle.apps.fnd.framework.OAException: oracle.jbo.SQLStmtException: JBO-27122: SQL error during statement preparation
## Detail 0 ##
java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00904: "POH"."NOTE_TO_VENDOR": invalid identifier

2. Unable to requisition and PO lists.
==>This is now resolved after providing the Grants from Worklist Data Services Manager and List Management

Do I need to create the SR with Oracle support to get the first issue fixed?

Thanks,
Ram

Posted by Ram Talluri on January 22, 2015 at 10:39 AM EST #

Ram,

Please create SR with Oracle Support for your issue related to PO lines.

Thanks
Vijay

Vijay,

What seeded approvals are currently available in the mobile app? We are most interested in requisition and timecard approvals.

Dave

Posted by Dave on February 06, 2015 at 11:51 AM EST #

Hello, when will the mobile approval app be available for Android?

Thanks!

Posted by Jamie Blowers on February 08, 2015 at 02:43 PM EST #

Dave,

Following seeded approvals are available in current release.

1) Requisitions
2) Expense Reports
3) Purchase Orders
4) Vacancies and Offers

We are working to add more approvals in the next release.

Hi Vijay,

Is OTL timcard approval mobile app avaialable? I don't see this on the list of approval apps. Thanks.

Calvin

Posted by guest on February 10, 2015 at 12:09 PM EST #

Calvin,

There will not be a separate OTL Timecards Approvals app. The approval support will be added into E-Business Suite Approvals app itself shortly. In EBS the strategy is to have one single Approvals App to support all it's approvals.

Thanks
Vijay
