Hello colleagues,

Symptom--Customer is reporting the step 19 of Lead Approval Process is not working for Lead 5398 as Hanna Suzova is not shown as the approver for the reported Lead. The approval process works until step 17 only.

the current product (label, ing" AND Production Category Equal to Basic

AND New product. Equal to Yes

Hello ramesh245,

Good day!Approval Process is complex, and it is rare to get it resolved without reproducing/debugging.

Approval Process steps can fail due to several reasons:
1. Conditions not working properly (very common)
2. Approver isn’t getting determined correctly

Regarding the second condition, I collect some documents maybe can help you.

And if the issue still persists, we suggest you create a case to SAP Support Center.
We can help to debug using ABAP debugger to identify which ones are failing and why they are failing.

Thank you!
