2378014 - Approval Process not working for External Users


We have a Item with Apporval process and when external users trying to access the course from the catalog search they are able to directly start the course and approvals are not triggering for them whereas the same item triggers approvals for Internal users.

As per the design all approvals are by passed for the external users, so its not possible to have apporval triggered for them.
