Add Custom Column to UWL inbox

Hello All,

I am trying to add two new columns to the UWL iview:

This is what I have done:

I have defined a new View and added the following attributes to the view. I have also include the attributes in the <b>columnOrder</b> tag

<DisplayAttribute name="<b>vendor</b>" type="string" width="30" sortable="yes" format="default" referenceBundle="vendor" hAlign="LEFT" vAlign="BASELINE" maxTextWidth="0" headerVisible="yes">

<Descriptions default="Vendor"/>


<DisplayAttribute name="<b>currency</b>" type="string" width="30" sortable="yes" format="default" referenceBundle="currency" hAlign="LEFT" vAlign="BASELINE" maxTextWidth="0" headerVisible="yes">

<Descriptions default="Currency"/>


The columns appear, but without any data. I am not actually sure of the DisplayAttribute name used here : "vendor" and "currency". How can I be sure that these are the correct names of the attributes?

I also tried using the UWL wizard:

- I chose "Define custom attributes and customize the corresponding view"

- I specified the correct task id in the "Specify Task ID" step

- Slected the right system in the "Select system" step

- Attributes step - Here, the list of attributes from the workflow container is empty

So I could not proceed.

Any pointers regarding the above problem would be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
