HCM Processes and Forms- launchpad config for PD process

Hi,

I have a requirement to launch custom PD forms(Rename position and Rename Org unit) for a position/org unit through Related Links in the position short profile application(HRMSS_POSITION_PROFILE) or Org unit short profile application(hrmss_Organizational_profile) respectively.

In the launchpad I have given the following entries(for the position one) :

Namespace SAP

Application ASR_PROCESS_EXECUTE_OVP

System Alias SAP_ECC_HumanResources

Application Alias

Target App. Parameter : OBJECT_MEM_ID&SUBST_CLASSIFICATION=NO_CLASS&PROCESS=ZHRPR_POSITION_RENAME&OBJECT_TYPE=S&INITIATOR_ROLE=HRASRB

Configuration ASR_PROCESS_EXECUTE_OVP_CFG

Now when I launch the form, the pop up opens and i get the error "Specify a valid Position" or 'Specify a valid Organizational unit'.

It looks like the Application Alias is needed. Can anyone tell what the Application Alias in case of PD process for a Position/org unit should be.

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks,

Saikat

    Try do it from...

    • Role – MSS
    • Instance – ORGANIZATION_MENU

    Refer here...

    Assignment of a Process to PFCG Roles - HR Administrative Services (PA-AS) - SAP Library

    Hi,


    Here are the screenshots :

    The launchpad config for my custom Process.

    This is the Organisation Teamview Application(HRMSS_ORGPROFILE_TEAMVIEWER, application config :HRMSS_ORGPROFILE_TEAMVIEWER). Here we select an Org unit and click on "Organization profile" button.

    After clicking the "Organization profile" button it takes us to the Organization profile application((application :hrmss_Organizational_profile, application config : hrmss_Organizational_profile)) where it shows the selected organisation data. I have enhanced the application configuration and added a Related Activity link and I have linked this to the launchpad config shown in the first screenshot.

    When I click on my custom Process(the one selected in the screenshot) I should directly launch the form since both the Process as well as the Object is selected. But, it seems that the object id is not written in memory. I am getting the below error..

    Any clues guys..?

    Many thanks,

    Saikat

    • Note that The new OVP based start process application ASR_PROCESS_EXECUTE_OVP doesn't include a separate team viewer based on the Nakisa Org chart for managers.We noticed that it was redundant to have a separate team viewer embedded in the start process application since the new MSS role has the team viewer in its home page itsef. Therefore it was decided to use the team viewer available in the MSS home page. Processes can be launched for an object via the context menu of the object. The entries in the context menu have to be configured via the launchpad customizing. You can refer to the following help documentation for more details: http://help.sap.com/erp_hcm_ias_2012_03/helpdata/en/62/7348706c174148804 31becce97c940/frameset.htm Navigate to the node WebDynpro ABAP UI Alternative -> Start Application -> Assignment of a Process to PFCG roles - this explains the configuration for MSS and ESS roles. The parameters such as OBJECT_MEM_ID and PERNR_MEM_ID can only be passed via the launchpad customizing. These parameters are required by the start process application to retrieve the Object ID for the selected object. When the process is launched from the context menu, these parameters are dynamically passed by the MSS application via the launchpad customizing. Hence you see above error Therefore, kindly perform the launchpad customizing for MSS as mentioned in the documentation and launch the process from the context menu of an object. This should work fine for you. You can pass the parameter PROCESS_GROUP in the launchpad customizing too.

    You are launching it bit differently, most of the times we use team app and from there we launch the employee/position/org actions, can you please give a try from team app and let us know if it works or not.

    Hi All,

    Yes, its working now. From the team app its working fine. The problem was due to application alias.

    From the org/position profile also I have made it work. It needed an enhancement.

    Thanks all for your replies.

    Thanks,

    Saikat
