Can't see any Purchase order in Approve purchase order app

Hi Experts,

I am using a SAP Standard Approve purchase order fiori app in SAP ECC 6.0 EHP6 and Gateway SAP NETWEAVER 7.4 with UI Add on , i.e. UI for ERP Central Applications UIX01EAP.

UIX01EAP1000010SAPK-10010INUIX01EAPUI for ERP Central Applications


I have assigned needed roles to the test user and also added task#TS20000166 in Materials Management under Start of the navigation path Purchasing Next navigation step Purchase Order Next navigation step Approve Purchase Orders App Next navigation step Specify Workflow Task IDs for Approve Purchase Orders App.

We are using user exit to determine Purchase order approver.

In ME29n for a PO , i can see the correct user in Release strategy tab

However in Fiori app ,when i am logged in using the same Approver user TestUserID i cant see the same PO appearing under Approve purchase order fiori app.

Even in the Approver's SBWP i cant see this work item

If i manually forward a work item to this approver from SWIA then this user can see a work item in Approve purchase order.

My question is What could be the cause for PO showing correct approver name in ME29n in release strategy tab and same approver not able to see this work item in his fiori Approve purchase order app?

Hi Jugren,

I have searched OSS notes, only relevant seems to be 2406310 however even after applying it, it still doesnt show any PO in approve purchase order app.

Do you have any other suggestion?

I am not yet in the S4 world, so I can't tell whether you would only see the workflow in the Fiori App or in parallel in the workplace in the Gui too.

If I assume it should be visible in transaction SBWP too, then I actually have to ask you to check your workflow logs to find out if it was at all triggered and exists and just has not the right receiver.


Hi Jurgen,

I am talking about SAP ERP and not S4

SAP_BASIS7310010SAPKB73110SAP Basis Component

SAP_APPL6060010SAPKH60610Logistics and Accounting

In the workflow log , i can see as shown below. Does this snapshot help?
