How do I prevent users from approving own work

I need to prevent users who are in the design group and checking groups from being able to approve their own work. The user initiates the workflow which goes for check by anyone in the checking group. They can currently approve their own work.

 

Thanks.

You don't say what Teamcenter version you're using so I'll assume the latest and answer: TCRS-check-approver. The handler allows you to compare two sets of users against each other so that they are not in both sets. In other words, they cannot approve their own work.

Sorry were currently running 10.1.3. I had found TCRS-check-approver but it doesn't work. I send items to the Check Group/Role and am trying to stop the workflow initiator from being able to approve their own work. It does error saying that the workflow fails but rather than stopping it continues on after the error stating TCRS-check-approver.

Try EPM-disallow-reviewers rule handler:

-assignee   user:$PROCESS_OWNER

 

This might help!

Been speaking to Siemens, in 10.1.3 it is broken. Suposedly fixed in 10.1.4.
