I’d like to share with you some tips and tricks to help you resolve some SP08 post-upgrade issues.
I’ve noticed that after SP08 upgrade the RfC’s Approval Procedure disappeared in SOLMAN 7.1 system:
To fix this I navigated to SPRO > Change Control Management > Standard Configuration > Transaction Types > Approval Setting > Define Approval Setting
Then I selected the ‘missing’ approval procedure there…
… and navigated to ‘Assign Default Approval Procedure’ path
Under ‘Assign Default Approval Procedure’ I maintained a Z* value as a copy of a standard S* value…
… and saved it.
The ‘missing’ approval procedure is back now.
I hope this helps.
