Symptoms

On : 11.12.1.0.0 version, Global Human Resources

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Transaction completes without final approver being required

Line manager navigates to my team, selects one of their reports, performs a promotion transaction and submits.
As per our workflow set up, a promotion when initiated by a line manager goes to a 'People Manager' for final approval.
The notification does go to the People manager and they can approve it, as per our expected process.

However, if I navigate to BPM as the same line manager who instigated the promotion, navigate to 'initiated tasks' and see the promotion notification.
When opened, the approve and reject buttons are available for the line manager to select. if they click approve, the transaction completes and the employee's record is updated.
 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Transaction to complete only when the final approver approves or rejects

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Configure approval to go to Area of Responsibility (AoR) for Promotion transaction
2. Submit transaction for employee as Line Manager (LM)
3. Approval is routed to AoR, who can approve
4. While approve is pending with AoR log in as Line Manager> approve transaction.
