Information in this document applies to any platform.


When enabling the workflow for PO and having the criteria set at the definition criteria level on the process definition page then sourcing a requisition to a PO using the auto source process and the "build PO as approved" check box is checked, then the PO will be created in pending status and the approvals will be "no approvals required"

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

  1. Create a new workflow for the PO and put the criteria to fire the workflow only when the PO is sourced using auto source process.
  2. Create a new requisition
  3. Run the auto source process and make sure that build PO as approved" check box is checked
  4. Review the created PO and notice that it is not approved it is in pending approval.
