ESS Life and Work Events: End to End Configuration


Hi Gurus,

ESS 1.0, ERP2005, EP7.0 SP11

I am trying to configure life and work events in ESS. I am aware that it is a CAF GP based application and first in its in HR which is thrilling.

I have been going though">this wiki</a>. I am also aware of

1" target="_blank">">1. CAF-GP: Configuration Guide.

2" target="_blank">">2. CAF-GP: Administration Guide.

3. The Guided Procedure role is also added on portal.

First of all, I do not see the DC "essuslwegp" in content administration>web dynpro>browse deployment> on portal as mentioned in the wiki. How to get the DC into portal?

I am trying to configure out of the box functionality. In the portal, I started the service in portal, <b>life and work events> life and work events US>processes>Birth Adoption.</b> Then I selected "Next" button, the system throws a message "Select a template". I do not see any templates to select.

The questions are:

1. Are these workflow templates? if yes, where should the template be assigned to a process?

2. I am also following these links:


Birth/Adoption" target="_blank">">Birth/Adoption (USA and Germany). In here, it is mentioned: The administrator receives an e-mail from the employee who submits the birth certificate as an attachment using the Birth/Adoption (Germany) service in the Employee Self-Service application in the Life and Work Events area.. UWL should be configured for receiving notifications?

3. If the user attaches the forms (birth certificate, marriage certificate), where these documents are stored? on As Abap or As java? Or content server should be utilized?

could any body share the information on how the out of the box CAF application works?
