When attempting to process an Item attribute value, with Approval Status "Submitted for Approval", the following error occurs.


Error: Can not change anything with Approval_Status == "Not Submitted For Approval"


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

1. Define item Validation rule using the following paramters:

 If Expression:

 Validation Condition:
 Item_Primary.Approval != "Not Submitted For Approval"

2. Query item with Approval Status of 'Not Submitted For Approval'.

3. Update the item attribute value for ATTR_GR_TEST.ATTR_C1.

4. Attribute value is saved without error.

5. Expect item rule to validate and throw error since item Approval Status is 'Not Submitted For Approval'.
