      There is no detail I can use to triage this. Is this a statement that you want customers to be aware of or an issue you are raising? If the latter, please provide details including how the work order flow emanates (from where) and where are you observing the approved requisition and what the expectation is.

        Ashok,

        Thanks for your response.

        We created Work order(WO) and released after releasing it automatically creates requisition and PO.

        PO is working correctly.

        The requisition is auto approving without approval.

      I may have to ask again. What is your expectation? What data do you have to support that you have configured approvals per that expectation but observe that actual behavior belies expectations?

        Ashok,

        My expectation is "Our normal requisition is going for approval, But WO requisition is auto approving".

        We need approval flow for Work Order through the requisition.

      Hi Dev

       

      Please review the Import Source of  requisitions, which are created from Work Order, under the View Requisitions Lines page.

      If the import source is SCO or DOO, the requisitions will be auto approved. (as per the current design)

      A similar behavior is observed for PR created from Supply planning, Min Max Planning or Drop Ship Orders.

      Currently this is reported as a BUG by Oracle

        Thank you, Piyush!.

        Perfect answer.

        Thanks,

        Dev Thota.

          Am assuming these are for outside processing items. If that's true, the observed behavior is as per design. Such requests are assumed to not require any additional approvals as a requisition. The very fact that the work order got released, means that such services are required in order to complete the work order. You can still have approvals when the request is being processed as a purchase order to ensure that the supplier and pricing conform to policies and guidelines in place.

          Please note that Self Service Procurement also supports adhoc purchases of goods and services for maintenance and manufacturing work orders which do require approval as any other requisition.
