    Hi Nikhil,

    as the error message is stating, the desired OBN navigation target is missing in the role ZSAP_EHSM_MASTER.

    In the role menu you need to define the target of the application. In the standard role this is done through invisible items which are the navigation targets. These need to be present in the role to use the navigation from the work list to the action processing of the work item (task in this case). Both authorization default values as well as Web Dynpro Applications are needed. See the screenshot bewow for details.

    For more details you can also check 5.12.1 OBN Overview - SAP NetWeaver Business Client - SAP Library

    In addition you need to define in customizing for the HSS work list that a specifc OBN item should be called for this workitem, otherwise the default execution of the work item is called from the work list (as displayed in your screenshot).

    The following link describes the scenario for HR, with the only difference for EHSM is the name of the Object worklist: POWL Inbox configurations for Manager Self-Service EhP5 and aboveAll concept explained in this article all still valid, though.
