The Java Console throws:
For input string: "ABC Dep. Mgr 1304"

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps.

3. Add one user group as Approver in one of workflow status, the User Group name has space, it's like "Workflow  Test"

- The approver user groups containing spaces are missing and
- All statuses after a status with such a review status do not have status criteria
