Approval processes for attestation cases

All attestation procedures are subject to a defined approval process. During this approval process, authorized employees grant or deny approval for attestation objects. You can configure this approval process in various ways and therefore customize it to meet your company policies.

You define approval policies and approval workflows for approval processes. Specify the approval workflows to apply to the attestation cases in the approval policies. Use approval workflows to find out, which employees in which order, can grant or deny attestation. An approval workflow can contain several approval levels and several approval steps. A special approval procedure is used to determine the attestors in each approval step.
