Rule with which the superior of an agent, a position, or an organizational unit can be determined.
Name: Superior of...
The following can be passed as rule parameters:
All three rule parameters are elements in the rule container. The contents ofORG_OBJECT are evaluated with priority. If ORG_OBJECT is not passed, the rule parameters OType and ObjId are evaluated.
In the demo example, the rule is used to find the superior of the initiator of the workflow starting from the initiator. The user name of the initiator is stored in a fourteen-character field with reference toRHOBJECTS-OBJECT in the element _WF_Initiator of the workflow container. The binding is therefore defined to the element ORG_OBJECT of the rule container for the relevant step.
Preparation in the organizational plan
The company's organizational plan is evaluated for the rule resolution. This takes into account either direct reporting structures between positions (position "reports to" position, relationshipA/B002 ) or the designation of chief positions (position "manages" organizational unit, relationship A/B012 ) in the organizational units.
The relevant relationships must have been created at the appropriate points when the organizational plan was set up.
