Approval Center: Access Denied Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys, we are facing an weird issues on approval center. One of the users, was able to access the approval center few days ago. Suddenly, the user started getting "Access Denied" error on approval center.

    We checked the Global Permission, "View Approvals" is also allowed. Still the user is getting the "Access Denied".

    Any idea?

  • Further debugging the issue, we found that the user is able to view the tasks that has been sent for approval and able to perform "accept/reject" actions.

    Only when there are no tasks in approval center, instead of "There are no new approvals to review at this time..." message, "Access Denied" is displayed. For other users it is displaying the former message.

  • I don't know if this was ever resolved but we have experienced the same problem in the last week.  I have found that in our case that we started archiving projects (created archiving category) and adding the projects to this category, with a security setting of no access to certain groups.

    We found that resources still submitted against these projects and this is what was causing the "access denied" for certain PM's on the approval centre.
