3458210 - PR overall release: workflow steps not loading for document type


In the Purchase Requisition (PR) overall release, users are unable to view or access workflow steps for specific document types, leading to delays in approval processes.

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental." 




Both the columns ovRelPReq and Scenario based workflow are not activated.


For overall release, it is mandatory to activate both the columns in the SSCUI - 102911(Requisitioning; Procurement of Direct Materials)


documentation link: How to Configure the Flexible Workflow for Purchase Requisitions

You can adapt the default settings, if required.

By default, for purchase requisitions the flexible workflow is active for the document types NB (standard purchase requisition) and NBS. For type NBS, overall release is defined.

You can activate the overall (header level) release or item level release for the purchase requisition document types defined in the configuration Define Document Types for Purchase Requisitions. You can activate overall (header level) release by selecting both the checkboxes, Overall Release for PReq and Scenario based workflow, for the document type in the configuration Activate Flexible Workflow for Purchase Requisitions. And you can activate the item level release by selecting only the checkbox Scenario based workflow.
