Hi Ranu, once activated invoice Approval all invoices necessarily have to be approved or can customize which should be adopted and which will be approved automatically via AME?

Hello Experts,

I am trying to set up a rule in Transaction type (Purchase Requisition) using R12 AME and as soon as i click on 'Create' button i get an error message "You have encountered an unexpected error. Please contact your system administrator".

FYI - I have assigned roles and grants to the user i am logged on with (Approval Management Administrator and Approval MAnagement Business Analyst) and have assigned grants too ( AME Transaction types and AME Calling Applications ).

Profile Option for Purchasing(AME Installed) is set to Yes.

I am able to create approval groups, modify existing rules for transaction type "Purchase requisition" but cannot create a new one. It gives me the same error message.

"You have encountered an unexpected error. Please contact your system administrator".

Any thoughts or comments will be really appreciated. We are doing an upgrade from to R12 and am creating some new rules on R12.1.1 instance.

Thank You,

Ranu, Thank you for the helpful Document.

We need to create a separate dynamic WorkFlow of approving (simply every next approver is a manager of previous approver until the approver is a chief) only for a particular template. Do you have any suggestions from what to start? Where should we check the condition for template? Can we have multiple workflows?
My understanding is that we can check on template in rules. But I do not want to touch at all the existing Workflow.

I appreciate any help from any one.
