Symptoms

When Requisition that have already been approved the first time (in "Approved" status), are put "On Hold" and then taken off hold the Requisition Status changes from "Approved" to "Pending".  When that happens, the Requisition has to route back to all the previous approvers.


Steps to recreate the issue:

  1. Ensure Workflow Approval Required is checked for Requisition in Req Change Option tab in Purchasing Definition
  2. Create a Requisition. Save and Submit. The Status is Pending for Approval
  3. View approvals
  4. Login as approver. Go to Worklist and Approve the Requisition
  5. Login back as Requester. Bring up the Requisition
  6. See View Approvals Link. Click Hold from further processing and save.
  7. The status changes to pending which is wrong
  8. See view approvals again. The approval workflow map shows that approval has triggered again
