Users Are Able To Bypass Purchase Order AWE Approval Workflow When Using the Change Order Icon on the PO Line (Doc ID 2745501.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 26, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Users are able to bypass Purchase Order AWE Approval workflow. The "Change Order" icon on the PO line is available to the user while the Purchase Order is in an Open status.

When the user selects this icon and makes a change on the PO line, the PO status will flip from "Open" to an "Approved" status automatically. This bypasses all the workflow rules.

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

Step 1: Create a Purchase Order and save it in an Open status.
Step 2: On the PO Line, select the "Statuses Tab".
Step 3: Select the "Change Line" triangle icon.
Step 4: Update anything on the line. I updated description in my example.
Step 5: Save the changes.
Step 6: PO status updates to an Approved status instead of remaining at Open.
