We are facing an issue with Leave request application. Currently the issue is with the LEAVE APPROVAL task.

Details of the issue are as follows

Employee applies for Leave request and Line Manager approves this workitem. However, the workitem remains in status started and the task remains in manager's UWL. However, if the manager re-open this uwl task again, it opens up an empty approval task box.

I have observed that ApprovedFlag in the workflow container is not being set, even if the workitem is being approved.

System details

ERP5ESS 1.41 SP6 (1000.

SAP_ESS 603 SP6 (1000.603.

SAPPCUI_GP 603 SP6 (1000.603.

There has been a latest patch update on Netweaver EHP1 SP7. Current Netweaver release is NW 7.01 SP7

Can you please advise on this.

Hi Saujanya,

Even I am facing the same problem. The Workitem status is not going to "InProcess" from "Ready" After the workitem is accessed.

Could you please share me how the issue got resolved.

I was also facing the same issue. For us - the problem was that after the update to the latest enhancement pack, the standard task -  TS21500003 - gets updated with the tick - Confirm End of Processing. When this happens the work-item goes into an executed state and does not get completed ( so the workflow stops here). Once you untick this checkbox in the task - you're workflow will again flow smoothly.

Just wanted to share this as I was searching everywhere for the solution.

Thanks & Regards,

Aditya Niyogi
