How can we hide Bypass Creation ?

Hi,
We are on version 7.1.
I have a manual execution step at my workflow and I'd like that the option 'Bypass Creation' is hidden when the request type passes through the step. How can I do this?
Thanks,
Sandeep.

Make it an immediate step. If you really need a user to push button before it executes, use a decision step just before it and make the execution step an immediate execution. This gives you the flexibility to show what options you want to the user and there's no 'Bypass Execution' button.

Jason,
This execution step is used to create ( or submit ) a request which has many mandatory fields to be Submitted.
Hence a manual execution step is needed so that the user can enter all these fields before creating the request.
If I keep an Immediate Execution step, the request cannot get created automatically since it has mandatory fields.

Hi Sandeep,

Try the server.conf parameter,

RESTRICT_BYPASS_REQ_EXEC_TO_MANAGERS=true

Also make sure users don't have the Demand Mgmt - Manage Requests access grant.

Let know if it still does not work.

Hi Sandeep,
I am not sure whether this workaround will suit you. I hope you will be using a System defined validation in this Execution Step.

Can you create your own Validation with the necessary buttons and assign it to the execution Step?

Please let me know if you have any questions in this.

Darshan and Mahendran , thank you for your replies.

Darshan,
Your suggestion worked perfectly fine !
I added the parameter and the "ByPass Creation" button is coming up only for the admin now.
But I'm unable to find the "Demand Mgmt - Manage Requests access grant".
Is it something not on v7.1 ? Perhaps on earlier or later versions ?
However there is an Out of the Box Security group called PPM Demand Manager, but that too does not have "Manage Requests" as an Access grant.

May be possible disable button "Delegate Decisiion" in "Decisiin step".

Hi Sandeep,

Yea.. I referred to an older version access grant for Demand Mgmt - Manage Requests. This access grant is now renamed as Demand Mgmt - Edit All Requests.
