Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expense work center.
  2. Select New Expense Report On Behalf.
  3. Enter all required information.
  4. Press Save.

The Expense Report's status changes to In Approval straight away instead of to In Audit.


For the country version Japan, an expense report first changes to in Approval status and only after to in Audit (Approval before Audit) as per standard configuration.

This standard configuration cannot be changed by the customer


The system is behaving as expected.
