3430773 - PR workflow is not restarting after manually cancelling the workflow.


  • Purchase requisition not restarting after cancelling the workflow manually using the administration application.
  • Purchase requisition is 'In Process" status, and workflow never restarts.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Workflow Administration application.
  2. Select the workflow instance.
  3. Click on "Cancel" button.
  4. Restart the PR workflow.


Field has no impact on the workflow either via Restart BADI or through SSCUI defined fields for restart.


To maintain the fields for which restart of workflow is applicable, use the configuration step Manage Conditions to Restart Flexible Workflow in Manage Your Solution app/you can create an implementation in Definition of Conditions to Restart Flexible Workflow in Purchase Requisitions (MM_PUR_S4_PR_WFL_RESTART) in the Custom Fields App and Custom Logic App. If you make a restart-relevant change in a purchase requisition in Awaiting Approval status without an active workflow instance, the workflow starts again.
