2407291 - Admin delegated workflow not going to Delegatee


Auto delegated workflow is not going to delegatee and stays with approver itself


Employee central - Workflow Delegation

Reproducing the Issue

1. Login as Admin

2. Goto Manage Data> create Auto delegate Config > assign Auto delegation to any approver

3. Login as random employee and raise the workflow

4. Workflow is still with approver and is not auto delegated to delegateee


The Approver from whom the workflow should go to delegatee is missing below permisison:

Manage User> Allow Auto Delegation (Target population required)



The Approver from whom the workflow is redirected to Delegatee should have 'Allow Auto Delegation' permission.

Goto permisison role for Approver and provide him permmission as below:

Manage User> Allow Auto Delegation
