Configuring Approval Rules with Descriptive Flexfields
SummaryA step by step guide to configuring approval rules using Descriptive Flexfields
Steps below illustrate how you can define an approval rule to route external supplier registration approval requests to a specific approver based on the value captured for a descriptive flexfield available on a supplier registration page.
1. Configure a descriptive flexfield using the Manage Supplier Registration Descriptive Flexfields task. For this example, we have configured a descriptive flexfield: SA8000 Certified that captures one of the 2 possible values: Yes and No to indicate if the registering company is SA8000 Certified or not. It is important to note the table column that is associated to the flexfield as it would be used to identify the approval attribute that maps to it. In this example, it would be ATTRIBUTE11.
