When submitting projects for approvals, the following error occurs.

395: Duplicate role Michael Liberatone('APPR_PAPROWF426505')

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

Step 1: A Capital Project (referred to as a CAR) is created in Oracle Projects.
E-CAR Analyst populates Key Members who will be the Approvers for the project
and submit the CAR project for approval by changing the project status changed to
“Submit for Approval” which launches the PAPROWF workflow.

Step 2: For the CAR project 15IDS055 was routed to
E-CAR Manager => Primary Approver 1 => Primary Approver 2 => Primary Approver 3 without any problem.

Step 3: However, after Primary Approver 3 approved the CAR, the workflow runs into the
325: Duplicate Role error in “Select_Project_Approver” function itself
