Steps
1. Enable Commitment Control and activate 3 approval levels - HR, EX Mgr and Prepay Auditor.
2. Employee submits an ER with an Expense Line for 70 USD.
3. HR Supervisor budget checks and approves the report.
4. Log in as Expense Manager and change the distribution of the Expense Line. Add a new distribution line and update ChartFields like fund, dept and project.
5. Click on 'Summary and Approve' and Approve the ER.
6. Log in as Pre-Pay auditor and observe the budget status.

Actual Behavior
After step 5 -
Budget status is still Valid even after changing line distribution.

After step 6 -
Budget status is still Valid and the approver is able to approve it.

Expected Behavior
Budget status should be reset to ‘N’ when any changes are made to accounting distribution so that approver runs the budget check process again before approving the transaction.
