Hi, the steps which I have taken while trying to setup Approvals as follows

1) Create queue PO-Qre
        a) Create template "Create Approvals"
        ===Create-Ticket: poreq         Subject: Approve purchase order for {$Tickets{'TOP'}->Subject}         Depended-On-By: TOP         Queue: Approvals-PO         Type: approval         Owner: username-of-owner   #note this is so that notifications work properly         Content: Someone has created a purchase requisition.  Please review and approve it, so they can spend some money.         ENDOFCONTENT
        b) Create the script "Create PO-Req approval"

        Description: Create PO Req approval         Condition: On Create         Action: Create Tickets         Template: Create Approval         Stage: TransactionCreate

    c)gave permission to the users who can create tickets under PO-Req

2) Create Approvals-PO queue

    d)Copy templates from _Approvals (or ran the script)
    e)Set the reply address to PO-Req
    f)Add the people as AddminCC who are to approve the ticlets
Now when I create a ticket under PO-Req, in the log it says it is creating ticket in Approvel-PO queue.
But I am unable to find the tickets in the DB or under Approvals tab

Can some one tell me what is going on!!!

Thanks and best Regards

Those Scrips were replaced in about mid-3.8 with
RT::Approval::Rules::*.  You shouldn't need to copy them anywhere in
order to use Approvals.  You'll want to modify the Templates as needed
and set up your CreateTickets scrip to actually create the Approvals
