Well, Workflow WS00000038 has 4 modelled outcomes after the release of the requisition request. Only 3 of these outcomes do anything (the 4th outcome Purchase requisition item significantly changed is a terminating event of task TS00007986 which subsequently completes the workflow). The other 3 outcomes are:
1. Release of purchase requisition item refused (TS00008014)
2. Requisition item released (TS00008018)
3. Release of purchase requisition item cancelled (TS00008348)
The important thing to note about these tasks (shown in brackets above) is that they are NOT marked as Background Processing. You can see this by double clicking on the task in the workflow and displaying the task. When this setting is NOT checked, it means that the method executes will display screen(s) to the user. This can also be seen by the fact that the method is also check as Object Method with Dialog. This means that the reason your task is stopping is because there is a dialog step that requires a user to execute it. Once the item is executed, the workflow should complete.
