Approva Map Basics

Userlevel 5

Can’t get approval map to do what I want and it is the most simple example possible - need help.


If requisition is created by JBROWNE, approval required from MENGLISH.

If requisition is created by anyone except JBROWNE (and $ > 0), approval required from PURCHASING.



No matter I what I do, it require approval from Purchasing only - clearly I am missing something obvious.

Hi @jwarren ,


Are\jbrowne 2 separate users?


I think you may want to break up\jbrowne onto 2 lines if these are 2 separate users. 

(requistion created by OR

requisition created by jbrowne)


(requistion created by OR

requisition created by jbrowne)

and $>0

It looks like you have Active Directory in use.  Are you sure you have the full username?  

We have AD in use on ours and I have a similar approval map for Sales Orders and when I tested it out using the Created By field, it works as I expected, but my AD user ID is longer (it has the domain at the end, it cuts off on the screenshot.  (i.e. megan.friesen@contego…..)
