(Doc ID 2366678.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2018

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After creating a Purchase Order, the Activity Log correctly displays the User and the date/timestamp in the Modified By section.  However, when the PO is Approved, the Modified By section displays the date/timestamp of the Approval, but displays the User ID of the Buyer not the Approver.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Purchase Order that needs approval - save and submit it for approval
2. Check the Activity Log - the correct information displays
3. Approve the Purchase Order
4. Check the Purchase Order Activity Log - the incorrect information displays on the Modified section. It shows the Buyer's User ID and the date/timestamp of the approval

Due to this issue, users cannot get an accurate user - date/timestamp on the Activity Log
