Reproducing the Issue

  • Extend the contract end date for a contingent worker
  • Try to approve the request
  • Application error 


This is caused by an incorrect configuration of the users data. In this instance, the end date for the user in question had expired which means the contingent worker is nowinactive. As stated in the following KBA:

As no operation on inactive work orders can be made, a work order that has become inactive can not be extended. 
We recommend rehiring the contingent worker to a new work order. 



This workflow request cannot be processed as the user has become inactive. This contingent worker needs to be rehired to a new work order as outlined here
