LREQ: missing edit button after approval using workflow

Hi altogether,

I have strange behaviour using the WDA leave request overview and the buttons to edit and withdraw a request. I set the possibility to edit and withdraw the leave request of the absence type to no in customizing. The buttons should be missing after report RPTARQPOST ran in backend.

But this behaviour is different when using a workflow and using no workflow. Using a workflow (in my case the standard one WS33700137 and a customer specific in another system) the button to edit disappears directly after approving the leave request, without running RPTARQPOST (see the attached picture). The delete button just disappears after running RPTARQPOST.

I tested the same scenario without using a workflow. Both buttons disappear after running RPTARQPOST, not after approving.

Could you please give me an advice what the reason could be? Does it really someting have to do with the workflow? I can reproduce this behaviour in two separate customer Systems that are using workflows.

thanks in advance and best regards from Germany

    1834648 - Fix workflow task title issue

    Note description :-


    In multiple leave request, new workflow WS33700137 is created. And this workflow reuses the tasks TS12300097 from workflow WS12300111.
    But workflow WS12300111 is used for WD Java. We should not use the tasks in this workflow.
    Another issue is that in new workflow we also use task TS12300097 for resend functionality. Then the title and description for resending is not correct.

    The old one delivered with WD JAVA - using tasks
    TS12300097 approval
    TS12300116 resend

    The workflow delivered with EH5 for being used in WD ABAP using tasks
    TS21500003 approval
    TS21500004 resend

    Your new workflow using task
    TS12300097 approval & resend

    • hows the behavior with WS12300111? for me it works correctly atleast with this WF but note even WS33700137 reuses the same tasks.

      So buttons should disappear after posting, not after approval. You are right about the behavior.

      Are you using any BADI or any modification? Please verify with standard WF and do ensure indeed the request is in approved status when the buttons disappear! not in IT2001
