3050560 - Revise Purchase Order Notification is Triggered for Multiple Users

Symptom

Multiple users are receiving "Revise Purchase Order" notification even though they are not buyer responsible or approver or creator of the purchase order.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Select Open tasks view 
  3. Or Go to Home work center->Inbox view to find the task 

Cause

Revise Purchase Order task is raised because an approver returns a purchase order for revision to the employee responsible.

The task is relevant to all employees to whom the Purchase Orders view is assigned and who have authorization for this purchase order. So, all users who have access to this purchase order will get this notification.

Resolution

You can restrict the purchase order read/write access under "Access Restrictions" in Application and User Management - Business Users-> Edit Access Rights.
