    Hello Nouman Rashid !

    Create a ztable with 2 columns : release level and agent id

    In the workflow, create a loop.This loop should go around 12 times.As first step in loop, create a container step with initial value 0 and should get increment by 1 during each iteration of the loop.Container step is used to maintain release level.The second step should be a background task to which release level is passed and the method picks the agent from ztable.As third step, create a a task calls the method DISPLAY of business object BUS2105.To this task pass, the agent picked up by the previous step.

    As fourth step, create a user decision step with "Release" and "Do not release" options.To this step, pass the same agent as passed to third step.Under "Do not release" branch maintain a process control step with function "Complete workflow".

    Outside the loop, call the function module in background that releases the purchase requisition.

    Still, I would suggest you to stick to maximum 8 release levels.

    Regards,

    • Hello Nouman Rashid !

      As per your question,in my understanding after 8 release levels the purchase requisition will get released.

      Still, check with your functional consultant whether the release of purchase requisition document can be avoided after 8 level approval so as to pick next 4 level approval from ztable.
