Held purchase reqs are triggering workflow

How are "HELD" (ME51N) purchase requisitions prevented from triggering workflow?

I was going to hide the hold button but I hear feedback from users that say it is sometimes necessary to place a requisition with many lines on hold temporarily to correct a problem as opposed to re-keying it.

    Hi Will,

    in case you still didn't get answer for "How are "HELD" (ME51N) purchase requisitions prevented from triggering workflow?":

    • I assume in your system held PReq are getting Release Strategy assigned, BOR even "Release Step Created" triggered, and therefore workflow is started, right?
    • I haven't see PS system in a while, yet according to the note 575387 - Purchase Requisition-hold functionality and Release strategy this issue is still not properly resolved;
    • so either you can implement this note (which is actually a modification)...
    • ...or you can use a workaround of enhancing structure CEBAN "Communication Release Strategy Determination: Requisition" (see user-exit M06B0002 "Changes to comm. structure for purchase requisition release") with custom indicator "PReq on hold", and include this in your Release Strategy classification (i.e. no RelStr for PReq with this indicator);

    Kind Regards
