Attributes (Seeded)

Oracle Fusion Approvals contain three types of seeded attributes. Below are some of the seeded attributes as an example.

  1. Header Level Attributes
  • Requisitioning BU
  • Requisition Amount
  • Preparer
  • Ledger
  1. Line Level Attributes
  • Supplier
  • Item
  • Price
  • Line Amount
  1. Distribution Level Attributes
  • Project
  • Natural Account
  • Distribution Account
  • Cost Center

In addition to seeded attributes, Fusion Application allows creating user-defined attributes.

      User-Defined Attributes:

  • Currency based User-Defined Attributes: If the company is using a standard set of approval rules, which apply across locations then we can simplify the rule maintenance by setting up rules in the same currency, instead of maintaining currency specific rules.
  • Custom User Defined Attributes
  • Summation User Defined Attributes

    6. Approval Rules in Fusion Approvals

Each Approval Rule has three components namely Condition, Attribute and Action. For Example:

Condition:  If Requisition Approval Amount (Attribute) is less than or equal to 1000
Action:       No approval required i.e. Auto-Approved

Condition:  If Requisition Approval Amount (Attribute) is greater than 1000 and less                than or equal to 5000
Action:       As per Approval Structure
