Introduction:
How can we make sure approval levels come from 3 separate user ids before the move process?
We do not want a single user id to be able to approve all levels.
 
Instructions:
 
Answer:

If userid 1 , userid 2 or userid 3 have the same approval levels then only one userid is needed to satisfy the approvals before the move process, however if userid 1 has the authority for approval levels 1 - 4 and userid 2 only has authority for approval level 5 and userid 3 only has authority for approval 6, then all three users must approval before the move can take place.

Make sure these userids DO NOT have Administrator Approval Authority as that would override the individual approval levels and would not satisfy the requirement of not allowing a single userid the ability to approve all levels.  

Approval levels can be done simultaneously by userid.


To verify what approval levels each userid has, from the PanApt Main Menu go to the Control File Maintenance and do an inquiry by userid or leave the field blank for a list of userids. 

See example below:

-------------------  Control File Maintenance - Entry Panel  -------  CA-PanAPT

 Enter Action  ==> INQ  ( ADD or A , CHG or C , INQ or I , DEL )
 
 Enter S to Select:

 S  User id       ==>                      (Enter UserID, Blank for list)
    Activity      ==>          /           (Enter File/Action, Blank for list)
    System info
    System Security info
    Verification Procedures
    Library Level Maintenance
    Access Method ==>                      (Enter Access Method, Blank for list)
    CA-Pan/LCM Configuration Manager info
 
 
         Press ENTER key to process; Enter END command to terminate.
