Parked Document Workflow: Release Group Not being considered


At the moment I am trying to implement Workflow WS10000051 to approve Parked Documents (using tcodes FV70 and FV75).

Event Linkage has already been configured as per SAP Help Documentation. Also I have maintained all the relevant configuration for this workflow:

1) Created a WF Variant 0001 and indicated WF WS10000051 for Preliminary Posting Release. Release amount: empty (as every document would need approval)
2) Assigned the WF Variant to a Company Code
3) Created Release Group GM01
4) Created Approval Path AP04 (although it is not necessary since in this case there would be one 1 level of approval)

5) As a result, following are relevant scenarios:

  • WF Variant 0001,
  • Doc Type DC,
  • Release Group: GM01,
  • Approval Path: AP04

6) Since there is only one level of approval, here is its definition:

  • WF Variant: 0001
  • Approval Path: AP04
  • Amount To: 9,999,999,999,999.00
  • Currency: USD
  • Release levels: 1
  • Subworkflow amount release: WS10000052
  • Subworkflow payment release: empty (not needed)

7) Then maintained the approver for the previous entered information, indicated only by a HR Position object ID

Now, from my understanding, in order to let the Workflow instance to be able to determine the subworkflow, that would come from the Release Group indicated in the Master Data either from the vendor or customer.
For this reason, using tcode XD02 I assigned the Release Group GM01 (created few steps back) in a given Customer.

My problem is that after I create a DC Parked Document to the test customer ID I am using, the Workflow tab does not indicate the Release Group. So, if I check the workflow logs, it stops at step 38: Determine Subworkflow.

I debugged that, and at a point compares the Release Group from the customizing, against the Release group of the Document (VBKPF-FRWEG), which is empty as it is not being pulled from the Customer Master Data (I believe should come from there).

Does anyone understand what it wrong here? Why field VBKPF-FRWEG is empty when the method subwf1determine from BOR Object FIPP is triggered?

I appreciate your help since this is being quite a problem right now.
