Symptom

It is not possible to approve a customer invoices due to the error: An approver could not be determined. Either approval is not relevant or the task is unassigned. Please contact your system administrator

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Select the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Select customer invoice XYZ which is in status Not Released (XYZ represents the invoice ID).
  4. Open customer invoice XYZ and go to the Approval process tab.

You notice the error: "An approver could not be determined. Either approval is not relevant or the task is unassigned. Please contact your system administrator"
