Some time ago we run into strange problem when running Vendor add justification workflow (VendRequestNVJTemplate). After creating Vendor Request in Employee Service we can see it in Procurement and sourcing > Common > Vendor Requests > Vendor Requests Pending Approval where the request gets approved. The problem is that after approving the Vendor Request we get error in Workflow History:

Stopped (error): Failed to find workflow version

After contacting the product team it happens that together with workflow Vendor add justification workflow (VendRequestNVJTemplate) we should configure “User request workflow” (UserRequestAddUserTemplate) under System administration > Setup > Workflow> User workflows.

The reason behind is that with new Vendor Portal we can automatically approved vendor provision to get access to this portal.
