“Unable to approve verification”
“Unable to decline verification”
“Manager is unable to approve or decline verifications”
“HR user is unable to approve or decline verifications”
“Cannot approve or decline as no access to changed fields or page”
The user role will not have the required access to approve or decline a verification, this will be restricted by the page permission available to the user or by the field group security that is being applied to the user role. If the requester user role has access to the field but the approver use role does not, the approver user role will not be able to approve the verification.
If a user role is unable to approve or decline a specific verification, the below guidance can help you.
Page Access Check:
System > Security > Role Management > Select the User Role affected (below is the view for each type of user role) > “Pages” tile > use the search function to search for the type of verification that the user role cannot approve or decline > ensure that “Write Access” has been provided for the page Subordinate Permissions.
Example of configuration options that would result in the message:
To update the configuration click Write Access under Subordinate Permissions > Review Changes > Update
