Standard PO Approval Config Process:
As a standard Release procedure configuration, we will go in SPRO and go in the below node. The Release code, release group and release strategy creation is standard and nothing new is there in that.

In this, we wont be assigning the User Ids, rather we will be assigning the positions that we have created. If we select Position, automatically “S” will come in the field
Press F4 on “Agent Id”
So we can see the positions we created in PPOMW appears here for assignment
If you observe, automatically, we get the numbers corresponding to the Positions created.System assigns a number automatically when we create a Position during organization set up
To enable the above configurations, it is imperative to have the workflow setup in the system. In the following steps, we will see how to set up the workflow for Purchase orders release.

In the above step, go to the “Trigerring event “ and select the line and click on “Call binding editor”

SWDD: Workflow Builder:
Go to SWDD and put the task as WS20000075 in there and see the below screen

Make sure the binding for TS20000166 is assigned under Task
Under agents, click the drop down and you will see the below options. Since we need to assign Position in our workflow, we will select “S” under Agents
Click on Position that we created above and assign it here
Select ACC_MGR and corresponding number will get auto populate here
Go to SWDD and select the step 0093 Release of Purchase Order
Click on Agent Assignment
It will take to the below screen
Since user was already assigned to Sales Manager in PPOMW, as soon as the position is chosen all the user assignments will come auto. Also we can assign the users to the position directly here.
As can be seen below, we can assign the users directly here also
My Inbox: PO Approval
