Two Level Approval Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i try to build a two level approval but it doesn't work really, hopefully you have an idea.

    Not Working Solution:

    MPR1 (auth. WF + Action WF) = triggered by adding a multivalued value, first approval is sent out.

    When approved, the action WF sets the IsApprovedAttribute to True.

    MPR2 (auth. WF) = triggered by condition of resource IsApprovedAttribute and before request definition Set

    Problematic: after the first approval is approved the second approval MPR is visible in applied policies in the IsApprovedAttribute = True request but it will not execute...

    I didn't find good material about a two level approval, i would appreciate if anybody could at least provide me some links if they are existing.

  • when first MPR triggers an approval it will not trigger another approval with an action workflow.

  • It depends on the activity. There is functionality in MIM to trigger authorizations, but not all activities do. MIMWAL can do for example: https://github.com/Microsoft/MIMWAL/wiki/Apply-Authorization-Policy

  • Hi-

    Generally for a two level approval you'd create a workflow with two approval activities in it. Once level 1 approves, level 2 will kickoff.


    Thanks,
