Thread: Approval process

  1. #1

    Default Approval process

    Hi,

    how could this approval process be accomplished with PDI:

    1. Start job when a new purchase order was added to the ERP system
    2. Calculate purchase total
    3. If total is greater than $10,000: send approval html e-mail with link to approval form webpage
    4. In approval form: user can accept or reject the purchase order
    5. If accepted: set approved = yes in purchase order details

    Thanks in advance,

    Andreas

    Hi

    Please follow below steps, since i dont have any dummy data i cant write ktr.
    i am assuming that you have a separate process for accepting/rejecting purchase order

    Step1: create a job and add transformation to it which should calculate purchase total, if total > limit, then send it for approval
    Step2: Schedule job created in step1

    I wonder if the complete workflow shown in the video is possible with PDI too, especially the human interaction part.

    What do you think? And how would you implement it?
