Here are the setups in point form that need to be done to get Approvals Management Access (AME) in R12.1.3
ü Access User Management Responsibility.
ü User Management has to be inherited through Role, as an Indirect Responsibility
ü For this, assign “Security Administrator” Role to yourself.
ü This Role grants inheritance of User Management Privileges to the user
ü Assigning this through SysAdmin will not work
ü In User Management, grant the Roles for “Approvals Management Administration” to the user.
ü Also, grant Functional Administrator and Functional Developer roles
ü These will grant indirect responsibilities to the user
ü After this, Approvals Management Administrator Responsibility can be accessed.
ü This will still not open up transaction types for viewing.
ü For this, create the Grant to the User by following the steps below:
ü Functional Administrator> Security>Grants>.Create Grant
ü Do the below to ensure specifics are granted to User for accessing User Management Pages
