And user John_Developer approved the TEST stage
When the same user, John_Developer tries to deploy the TEST stage
Then an error will returned as Deployment failed. You previously approved a release to this stage


Scenario #2 - Override approval for a user that previously deployed to non-prod

Given user John_Developer deployed the non-production stages
When the same user John_Developer approves the Production stage
