Additional Symptoms:
 The approval route in AME using the test run has been checked and it shows the correct hierarchy:
From the AME responsibility, open the test workbench
Select transaction type as PURCHASE_REQ (or  INTERNAL_REQ) to enable
Provide requisition header id as transaction id and test for the AME generated approvals: Correct approver is found

The Replicate Seed Data program has been successfully run but the problem persists.
