7.2 Approval Mechnism: Timeout
I'm currently playing around with the 7.2 approval mechanism. When starting a new approval, an "expiry" is calculated and shown in the "to Do" tab which is 30 days from now (e.g. started at 21.7.2014, expiry is set to 20.8.2014). However, I specified "Indefinite" at the approval in the MMC.
Looking at the help-file says: that an approval is automatically declined after 90 days, regardless if a larger timeout is specified.
Did anyone investigate in this already?
Yes, there's a built in 90 day fixed limit in the earliest versions with the "new approval" mechanism. If I remember correctly it was increased in a later SP due to complaints that approving assignments could actually take more than 90 days...
In November 2013 we added support for a global constant named MX_MAX_EXPIRY_TIMEOUT that can contain your custom setting. So a release after this date should have support for it. Note that this is set by the dispatcher to the mcExpiryTimeout column of the approval when the approval is initialized.
