SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.

Select Purchase Orders view. 
Find Purchase Order XXX.
Open Purchase Order XXX.

Click View All.

Go to Approval tab. 
Notice that there is a task for user YYY, which is the buyer responsible. 


In Approval Process, you are using direct approver. In this case the filtering does not work because Business Task Management directly assigns the task to user without providing exit to application.


As the direct approver is being used, the system is working as expected in this case.
