3454234 - Approver Type Position Relationship behavior during Job Information workflow


A position has a Position Relationship: Custom Manager as of current date and a different Custom Manager as of future date. If Workflow on Job info has been configured where Approver Type is position relationship. In this case, If a workflow (Position change initiated via Job Info) is triggered on the future date, then the workflow is sent to the Custom Manager as of current date, instead of the future Custom Manager.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Configure the workflow as per above screenshot.
  2. Make sure workflow trigger on save of Job Information
  3. Make change and save
  4. System will show current custom manager as approver instead of Future record custom manager. 


Expected Behaviour


This is expected behavior of the system. For using position relationship system will select always valid record as per today and select the approver.
