What is the release method set in ASL definition?
Automatic Release - Will create Approved Purchase Order
Automatic Release/Review - Will create Incomplete Purchase Order.
If PO is getting created, its definitely not a bug.
please verify user has approved rights or not.
User approvals perhaps has nothing to do with the above scenario, The ASL attributes for that Item and GBPA association at that level and release method determine it.
Your thoughts please.
