How do we approve a particular wf step in SC. Suppose a shopping cart is awaiting for approval from Cost manager and procurement approval. Is there any FM or Class method used to approve or bypass the cost manager approval step and process to next level approval for the specific Shopping cart. Please guide me.

Arunagiri,

Workflow is designed to take approvals at certain step, not to bypass.

If bypass is a daily process, then workflow needs to be changed, & that set of approvers need to be removed.

If bypass is conditional : on certain item type etc, its still an organization rule to change the workflow and remove those condition from the workflow so that it can bypass.

if bypass is not a daily need but its just required for 1 instance. Workflow administrator can do that from tcode SWIA. by having right selection criteria of date/ SC number in SWIA Selection

Select the work item, & select option complete manually. Administrator can accept or deny it.

Always remember, any approval step in workflow is a dialog step. It always require someone to take action on it.

Thanks

Anand

Sorry it is not bypassing. What I ment to say was if the cost manager does not approve the shopping cart for a specific period of time then in that case it should be auto approved and processed to the next level of approval.

I have tried with the FM: SAP_WAPI_WORKITEM_COMPLETE to complete the particular step but the approval status is going into Error in status.

Can anyone help me out? This FM: SAP_WAPI_WORKITEM_COMPLETE just marks the status to completed but the WF does not moves to the next approval step.
