Automate accept of approvals

Hello,

 

this might sound like a weird question, but is there a way to automate the accept of the approvals? I have not seen a connector that could do this, but maybe there is an API call that could solve this problem.

 

The reason behind this is, that we have a step in the approval process that we dont need right now, but we also do not want to remove it, because of the amount of time it would possibly consume removing it combined with the possibility that we will need it again in the future.

 

Thank you,

Max

There is no way to automate acceptance of an approval.  You can copy the approval and put it at the end of the flow with a Terminate in front of it.  That way the settings will be preserved but it won't run when you run the flow.  Another option is to put it inside the yes side of a condition but set the condition to always follow the no path. Again, the settings would be preserved but the approval would never fire.

Thank you very much for your quick response! Then I will create some workaround by removing the approval. That is not the best solution, but it will do the job.
