Reversal workflow triggered with WF-BATCH


Automatic Reversal has happened for FI Document.

With “WF-Batch”  Document have been reversed using transaction FB08, Not able to find out how reversal workflow started.

Reversal done by WF-BATCH but there is no background job executed to trigger the event REVERSED.

Also I have checked for custom program to trigger workflow but I didn't get anything.


Clearing of items happened for the  vendor 7411100048, Then accounting document 4001000293 got reversed.

Clearing of Vendor also in same date.

Please help me to understand how Reversal happened in FB08 by WF-BATCH.

Usually Reversal Agent will be the user name who started the reversal process. But for this case, workflow Initiator is WF-BATCH.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Priya,

    Have you tried to check event log(SWELS) or job logs(SM37) around the start time of the workflow?

    How is that event REVERSED usually created?

    Sometimes WF-BATCH gets used for non-workflow purposes, like running batch jobs.

    I would check both SM37 and SWI1 (workflow log) for anything around that time and date.

    .... and this is why I always keep the event trace (SWEL) turned on in Production, despite what anyone else says.

      I have already checked the workflow log but not able to find.

      Workflow started by Workflow-System, Workflow initiator is WF-BATCH, Reversal Agent also WF-BATCH.

    I would suggest check in SWI6, with the docnum mentioned in the screenshot. And try to find out what are  the other  workflow   there and analyze the workflow log to find out is any reversal functionality implemented in any workflow.
