HRESSAPPROVER table updates

Former Member

Hi ESS/MSS Gurus,

Here is our scenario:

For Attendance/Absence Types other than Sick Leaves (with and without Pay), the Manager is the determined Approver

For Sick Leaves, it should be the Company Physician.

These requirements were setup in the workflow configuration (i.e. created separate workflows for Sick Leaves and for other Attendance/Absence Types)

The problem is, I have a sick leave request which is being sent to the employee's manager. It seems that the entry in table HRESSAPPROVER overwrites the workflow configuration. Now the questions are:

1. When is this table updated? I noticed that the entries do not encompass all employees who initiated requests

2. Aside from SE14 or editing the table, is there a standard SAP program which clears the contents of this table?

Your immediate response is highly appreciated

The approver is picked from the table HRESSAPPROVER for the user

Also it depends upon the customisation of the rule group on which

approver should be picked, Please check the rule group assigned to the

pernr and their settings in table V_PTARQ_TPROCESS and under section

determine next agent. All the customisation can be found in


there is no transaction as to delete the entries in this table!
