After Upgrade to R12, we are seeing the PO Auto approval is taking some time. In 11i this used to be instantaneous.
We identified that the POAPPROV workflow has Background_flag item attribute set to 'N' by default in both 11i and R12.
However, in R12, when the workflow is initiated, this attribute is becoming 'Y' and there by making the approval process deferred and This is waiting for next workflow background process to proceed further.
In 11i, this attribute is 'N' and approval is quick.
Are there any profile options that make the Background_Flag = 'N' for the POAPPRV workflow?
Any other inputs to make the Approval process instantaneous?
