  1. Verify that the Approval Tasks do appear using CA PAM's native client/browser interface
  2. Check CA SDM's approve.log file from CA SDM log directory (NX_ROOT\LOG) for errors like:

    ERROR ITPAMProxy 175 ERROR: ITPAM(http://myITPAMserver:8080/itpam/soap) Connection failure reason(Invalid user/password or token.)
    This error indicates that the credentials used to access the Approvals App is not the same credentials to login to CA PAM.
    The Approvals App -> PAM integration requires the same credentials to be used for CA SDM and CA PAM.
    If they are different, the Approval Apps -> PAM integration does not display the Approval tasks within the Mobile Enabler Approvals App.
