S/4 HANA Requisition - Awaiting approval without being subject for release

0 Kudos


In my current S/4 HANA set up I have disabled the "Automatic Approval of PR" at the Overall level, and left it active at item level.

After creating a text-based requisition, in FIORI it shows "NO" under "Subject to release", but at header level it shows "Awaiting Approval". The requisition doesn't show up in the "Manage purchase requisitions" app, because it is, in fact, not released.

I've already tried deactivating all workflows but still get the requisition created with an "Awaiting approval" status. Is there anything I need to check on the config side? All the relevant scenarios for workflow have already been activated.

Hi Laura,

One thing to check would be to deactivate the Flexible Scenario indicator under SPRO>MM>Purchasing>Purchase Requisition>Define Document types.

Select your document type and scroll to the right until you see the "Scenario Based Workflow" flag. If it's turned on it will go to Flexible Workflow.
