Business task is inconsistent - no valid responsible person/organization
Searching for responsible in non-configurable work category: Purchase Order Approvers from Simulation


The system is trying to notify the person that approved the document that a change happened, however since the user is no longer valid in the company, then the notification cannot find them and user should select another person for the task manually.


 Since the user validity is removed, system would not know whom to determine the responsible and hence this is unassigned. This is the current behavior of the system.
