Initiator is a test ID


Hello experts,

My workflow requires that the initiator is a security test ID (the user uses this to login so sy-user I believe becomes the test ID) which is required for security reasons to limit approvals of the objects for which the workflow is designed. The workflow design also requires that a confirmation is sent back to the initiator. Since the initator is a test ID the workflow will not be able to find an actual user. I thought of creating a custom table where the test ID is linked to an actual user and then inserting code in a method attached to a standard task and change wf_initiator........please advise if this is the recommended way to do it and how or are there other ways?

Thank you.
