I have a workflow that uses a SoD detour when violations are detected. If no violations are detected, auto-provisioning kicks in and the user receives a closing notification with the pwd details. The provisioning is set to end of request.
The problem is that this closing message is also sent if the workflow takes the detour route. I’ve tried to add a dummy stage as the last stage with the closing notification. But I’m unable to figure out how to auto-approve the stage. Checking the auto-approve setting found in GRFNMW_CONFIGURE doesn’t make any difference. Any hints how to auto-approve or solve this notification issue? I’m on SP06 but will patch to SP08 soon.
I am not sure that I even understand the requirements for Auto Approve Roles without Approvers. I found a SAP Note or 2 that states the criteria from 5.3 and then understood that there was little that I could do to make my scenarios meet the criteria. I am guessing the same exists for AC10. Do you yave provisioning set at end of stage or path.....end of path, theoretically, would give you several closings if you are routing some items down a detour.
For a NoStage approval, the only way I have found to do thei is to create a Path with NO STAGES, and route items through it, but to me that really is not the same as the No Stage approval becuase i cannot put any thing beyond that easily. I am guessing that I might have to have a Routing set to ALWAYS be at that Path...but wait...i think it needs stage to reoute from as well. This will take some work on my part to understand. But for items like a display/default role, use a routing rule say just before a Role Owner stage to send them down a NoStage Path, but make sure that your provisioning is at End of Request if you only want 1 instance of provisioning and hence, emails...
We just implemented a scenario which involved Auto Provisioning with having to approve the request.I am not sure if it can help you.
Here's what we did.We wanted that if Company VP goes on leave or any high level Mgmt user goes on leave and he hands over his responsibility to some other person , that person should get the VP's roles or which mgmt person's roles once he sends an email to the ticketing tool.
So,we created a "Delegation Request" (SPRO-->CUP-->request type)
and added the request type to BRF+ rule of the initiator which included the result rule value for this request (Delegation).
Now we created a path for delegation , but did not configure any stages for this path.
Next we maintained the route maintenance path .
Now whenever a delegation request is created , it goes thru this path and since there is "NO" approval stage it gets provisioned and it seems to work fine for us.
Still not sure if this can help !!
