R12: AP: Initiate Approval Checkbox is Disabled and Invoice Cannot Be Submitted for Approval (Doc ID 2953250.1)

Last updated on JULY 04, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


'Initiate Approval' checkbox is disabled when the Invoice is in 'Needs Revalidation' Status even when the Payables Option 'Require validation before approval' is disabled.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Invoice was entered and validated in the Invoice Workbench
2. After the Invoice has been modified, the status was updated to 'Needs Revalidation' as expected.
3.Now the invoice cannot be submitted for approval since the 'Initiate Approval' checkbox is disabled.
