Cause

By default Project Baseline Approval shall go to Responsible (Cost Center) Manager which is assigned to the Project.

If Responsible Unit Manager is not maintained then it will go to next available cost center manager/line manager.

If multistep approval is maintained then Approver is triggered based on it which is visible in application user management under Approval process view.

Resolution

The system is behaving as designed.
