The Post Journal Role Allows Users to Post Journals that are Not Approved

 Modified 06-MAY-2010 

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Management - Version: 4.0.0.0.00 to 11.1.1.2.00 - Release: 4.0 to 11.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Journals can be in numerous status levels ranging from Working, Submitted, Approved and Posted.  Only when journals are Posted do the journals impact the stored data. 

The only users who can post journals are Application Administrators, Journal Administrators and users with the Post Journals role. Any user with the Post Journals role can post a journal, whether that journal has a Working, Submitted or Approved status.

Cause

This is currently the designed behavior of HFM.

Solution

Unpublished bug 6632329 was created by Oracle Global Customer Support  such that the Post Journals role should only permit journals to be posted which are in Approved status, and that users with just the Post Journals role should not be able to approve journals. The ability to approve journals should be a separate responsibility and limited to those with the Approve Journals role.

This suggestion has been rejected.   There are no plans to change the current behavior. Any user with the Post Journals role can post a journal with a status of Working, Submitted or Approved.
