After applying the fix from Bug 25534643,  one particular scenario is not working as expected. Find the analysis as below

PO status is in approved status(expected behavior) when adding comments and reducing PO amount. But when the change order button (blue triangle icon) is clicked , then adding comments and reducing PO amount, incorrectly retriggers approval workflow

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

  1. Create a purchase order, that requires approval. Dispatch the PO.
  2. Display the PO and click the Create Header Change button (blue triangle)
  3. Header will change to Pending but the line remains approved.
  4. Purchase Order is not in the Worklist for the Approver.
