Restricting workflow


I implemented a simple workflow that will send an email when a material is changed in MM02. However, there is an additional requirement such that the workflow should only be triggered for a certain material group MARA-MATKL.

Is there a way to achieve this? I was thinking it should be done via the user-exit. But I'm not sure how to trigger the workflow from there. Can anyone please advise?

select single matkl from mara into lv_matkl where matnr = wmara-matnr.

if lv_matkl = '0110'

* execute / trigger the workflow

    Hi Cholen,

    You can use transaction SWB_COND to create a new start condition for your workflow.

    • Hi Custodio,

      I could not figure out how SWB_COND works. Obviously I'm new to this but I found it can also be done in the triggering event from SWDD. I found the an expression for material group. But another one I need is the cross-plant status (MSTAE). Unfortunately I don't see it here though. Any thoughts?
