Automate approval process on Quote

Can you help complete the below code along with trigger

  3. Automate approval process on Quote ( created in previous tasks ) using trigger.

Check approval criteria in trigger.

public class ApprovalProcessHandler {
    public static void approval(){
        Approval.ProcessSubmitRequest req = new Approval.ProcessSubmitRequest();
//If the next step in your approval process is another Apex approval process, you specify exactly one user ID as the next approver. 
//If not, you cannot specify a user ID and this method must be null.
Approval.ProcessResult processResult = Approval.process(req);
//Valid values are: Approved, Rejected, Removed or Pending.
System.assertequals('Draft', + processResult.getInstanceStatus());

Hi Shruthi,
Can you elaborate more on the ask?
Are you looking for trigger logic for the above handler class?

Hi Shruthi,
You can refer below trigger logic and make adjustments as per your requirement.
trigger ApprovalProcessHandlerTrigger on Quote (after insert, after update) {
    // to get list of Quotes that needs approval
    List<Quote> quotesForApproval = new List<Quote>();

    for (Quote quote : {
        // Check if the Quote meets your approval criteria
        if (quote.Amount > 10000 && quote.Status == 'Draft') {

    if (!quotesForApproval.isEmpty()) {
        // Creating an approval request for each Quote
        List<Approval.ProcessSubmitRequest> approvalRequests = new List<Approval.ProcessSubmitRequest>();

        for (Quote quote : quotesForApproval) {
            Approval.ProcessSubmitRequest req = new Approval.ProcessSubmitRequest();

            // Adding approval request to the list

        // Submitting the approval requests
        List<Approval.ProcessResult> processResults = Approval.process(approvalRequests);

        for (Approval.ProcessResult processResult : processResults) {
            // Check the approval status and handle as needed
            if (processResult.isSuccess()) {
                System.debug('Quote submitted for approval successfully.');
            } else {
                System.debug('Quote approval submission failed: ' + processResult.getErrors()[0].getMessage());
