dialog workitem is logically deleted


this is rather simple workflow, with approval dialog step of user decision.

the dialog workitem is seen as logically deleted in the workflow log.

we are not able to make out why it is getting logically deleted.

there is nothing in the workflow log that can give us any clue. we checked swel, st22, sm58 etc....

how can we find out why the dialog workitems are getting logically deleted ??

    Is only the dialog step / work item logically deleted? Is the workflow (the header work item) itself still in process? Or has the whole workflow been logically deleted?

    It could be of course possible that somewhere (outside of the workflow - user-exit, BADI, Z-program, etc.) is some code which directly terminates the work item (e.g. with function SAP_WAPI*CANCEL*). This might be difficult to trace down...

    Kind regards,

    • hi Karri,

      thanks for the critical point of workflow status completed

      im focussing on reason why wf got completed

      i found the message SWF_RUN, 611, Execution Interrupted

      I am tyring to explore this message

      i've just refreshed buffer and regeenrated the busines object and waiting for more such instances to occur

      this has been very common problem and there are too many workflow instances with this problem

      thank you

    What does the log read for the item? And the WF?

    • I think your analysis is pretty much on the money.

      In particular "also there are some other ways in which the workitem is being completed using funciton module"

      --> I think that is your most likely cause. Something special about the process is triggering something which calls one of these.

    Variuos reason may be there. You have to check in your design. ForK step complete, Process control step, terminatin event etc . Check and share screenshot of design of worklfow step
