SUMMARY:

Due to a possible auditing concern we are looking to change/limit the package approval process within Endevor.  Programming has asked if there is a way, within the Endevor controls to not allow someone in an approval group, who has cast the package going to productions to not be apble to approve the same package.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

There are two ways to accomplish this:

  *  upgrade to V18.0.03 and use the new optional feature:
 ***********************************************************************
 * O0007182                                                             
 * THIS OPTION WILL DISQUALIFY AN APPROVER FROM APPROVING OR DENYING    
 * A PACKAGE IF THEY HAVE EITHER:                                       
 *   1) CREATED, UPDATED, OR CAST THE PACKAGE                           
 *   2) MODIFIED ANY OF THE ELEMENTS WITHIN THE PACKAGE AND THE ACTION  
 *      REQUIRES APPROVAL                                               
 *                                                                      
 * SPECIFY 'A' TO VERIFY APPROVERS FOR BOTH STANDARD AND EMERGENCY      
 * PACKAGES.  SPECIFY EITHER 'S' OR 'E' TO VERIFY APPROVERS FROM        
 * STANDARD OR EMERGENCY PACKAGES ONLY, RESPECTIVELY.                   
 *                                                                      
 * EXAMPLES:                                                            
 *     ENHOPT APPROVER_DISQUALIFIED=(ON,A)   ALL STANDARD & EMERGENCY   
 *     ENHOPT APPROVER_DISQUALIFIED=(ON,S)   STANDARD PACKAGES ONLY     
 *     ENHOPT APPROVER_DISQUALIFIED=(ON,E)   EMERGENCY PACKAGES ONLY    
 *---------------------------------------------------------------------*
 *     ENHOPT APPROVER_DISQUALIFIED=(ON,A)                              
 *
