Control Batch Record E-signature workflow approval action is failing when one of the approver's Oracle account is end dated after the WF was initiated.
The issue was captured in reference with OPM Control Batch Record e-signature approval process, but this could happen to any workflow approval process.

The approval notification will send to multiple users as the rule was defined with 'First Responder Wins' having multiple approvers.
In the multiple approvers, if an approver is inactivated after the approval workflow got initiated, then there is an error.

1. Data fix to close the workflow notifications which are still in open even after they are approved - This list is growing and adds lot of confusion, please request development to provide the data fix asap.
2. Then patch for a avoiding this issue from happening.
