Environment

Cause

The workflow is attached as onSave (saveRules section) in the object definition of "NonRecurringPayment". Because of this, the system considers the workflow to be already "Approved" even though it's not approved by the approver.

Resolution

The workflow should be attached in the validateRules section in object definition of NonRecurringPayment.
