    RELEASESTEPCREATED is triggered when a PO is created also a Release Strategy needs to be defined in the system. In short Release strategy allows multi-level approval process. More details can be obtained from your BA/functional person.

    If you want a clear picture of this the best place to start is in the Implementation Guide. Read the documentation for the various nodes. That is more clear than most of the answers you will get here and is the method I used to set up release procedures, both for purchase requisitions and purchase orders.

    If you have a specific problem after having read the documentation and tried to set it up, ask a new question here. This is not an online training facility for people who can't be bothered to read the documentation.

    Please also check the guidelines for information about how to ask a question in a way that increases the chances of receiving a (good) answer.

    • You don't need to build your own workflow (unless you have other requirements that demand it). All you have to do is define the release procedure/strategy correctly. Depending on whether you want the release work items to be created sequentially or in parallell you set up prerequisites for the release codes in your release strategy. Again, all this is well described in the documentation for the respective nodes in the Implementation Guide.

      I am not sure if I quite understand your solution (your questions/description), as I said you don't really need to create your own workflow. I would recommend setting it up with the standard workflow first and get that process working before you start working with your own workflow. That way you can solve one problem at a time - which is usually much easier.
