I have read some topics about this problem and it seems there should be a "P2P-PROV-DISC-PBC-REQ" shown at the wpa_cli, acturally there's nothing shown up. Why ?

Most P2P devices do not accept any random invitation request they
receive automatically and as such, status=1 is the most likely result of
an invitation to a running group. The peer device may display something
on the UI for the user to accept the connection and then join the group
separately after this.

This is the expected behavior. A user action is required on the peer
device to connect and status=1 indicates that that was indeed the case.
