Work Item Forwarding

Hello,

Here is the scenario:

I have a task in a workflow. I have defined possible agents (in task definition) and responsible agents (in WF definition). The task attribute is "General Forwarding Allowed".

In the scenario, a responsible agent receives work item in his inbox. He then forwards it to the user who is NOT a possible agent of the task. The system gives the warning message but allows the forwarding. This forwarded agent then executes the work item.

Question

-


Is there a way to ALLOW forwarding of the work item to any user who is not a possible agent. But to PREVENT that user from executing the work item.

Any help would be appreciated and will be rewarded!

Regards,

Sandeep

    Ho Sandeep.

    Change your task attribute into "General Forwarding not allowed"

    This option will calculate possible agent during "Forward" button

    Hi Sandeep

    If you want to Allow general forwarding but restrict execution to only the users allowed, You need to rely on SAP's Authorizations.

    If an action is allowed or not for a specific user, should not ("<i>can not</i>") be based on your workflow design. It must be based on your SAP security design (Your SAP Roles).

    Remember that Forwarding isn't the only that another user can gain access to a workitem. If a user assigns a substitute that's not allowed to execute you will face the same problem, or even if an administrator executes the workitem from transaction SWIA.

    If you are using SAP Standard functionality, the SAP Standard authorization check, for the called functionality, would be checked. In order to find out exactly which objects has been checked, you can use the trace functionality in transaction ST01.

    If it's your own development you need to include the nescesarry checks in the ABAP code.

    Hi Sandy,

    Thanks for your help, but "General Forwarding Not Allowed" option doesn't allow me to forward it to anyone but possible agents.

    Hi Morten,

    I thought so, but wanted to reconfirm this because I have one client who said this was happening in the older version of SAP, 4.6C. Thanks for the reply. I will reward the points.

    Thanks all again!

    Regards,

    Sandeep
