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

1. Enable workflow for a Business Unit say US002 at Purchasing Definition > Req Change Option

2. Ensure Change Track option is ."A" and Change Template is ,"STANDARD"

3. Ensure approval process definition is active for Requisition and criteria is set accordingly for path and step

4. Create an item for Par Replenishment

5. Create a Par Location for US002 (Main Menu > Inventory > Replenish par Location > Define par Location)

6. Ensure Par Replenishment Option=Non-Stock. Enter the Optimal Qty=100. Save

7. Create Count Par Location Levels for Par Location. (Main Menu > Inventory > Replenish par Location > Count Par Location level)

8. Select Quantity Option as Count Qty. Enter the Count Qty 10 and Save

9. Create Par Replenishment Requests i.e. Run INPGCDMD for Business Unit US002 and for specific par location for Unit (Main Menu > Inventory > Replenish par Location > Create Par Replen Requests)

10. Ensure Process runs to success

11. Check the Message Log. Requisition is created

12. By default, all requisition will be created in Pending status irrespective of Workflow enabled or disabled

13. Open the Requisition and then save it. The Requisition Qty is 90
