Trying to use automatic release functionality during wip job creation.

Creating two BPA, and assigning resources, creating job ,
run Requisition Import, create releases then run Delivery Note OPS  (Outside Processing)

When we try to approve a Release from a local Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Outside Processing (OSP) process in  organization (Operating Unit 1),
you will receive  the following.

Warning: "This shipment has no distributions" and later on, if you try to approve the release, an error message pops up:

Error: "Schedule # 1 Release shipment has no distributions".

Once distribution records are manually createD, the release can be processed.

Expect the automatic process to create the distribution record on the newly created release.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Outside Processing (OSP) process in  organization (OU1),
2. Assigning resources,
3. Create job ,
4. Run Requisition Import,
5. Create releases
6. Run Delivery Note OPS
