We are on Oracle R12.1.3.
We are switching on the Approval Management Engine (AME) for iProcurement and Purchasing.
we are about to assign the AME responsibilities “Approvals Management Administrator” and “Approvals Management Business Analyst” to a user , USER123
Does USER123 need to be set up as a buyer to create AME rules ?
AME rules for iProcurement are defined for requester. So to test the AME rule itself, you need not be a buyer.
Besides, configuration responsibility can be granted to any employee (From IT department) who may not be a buyer in the role.
So the answer is "Not required"
