Hello everybody,

does anybody know which function/program is used to display workitems in inbox (sbwp)?

I need to know why is this workitem displyed, although the item is in status canceled. So I want to try debug it, but I do not know where start.

Thank you in advance.

Yes, you are right, there was another workflow.

Many thanks for your help Susan.

Hi Lukas,

First I'd like to make sure that you are talking about a workitem (task) where the workflow instance has been cancelled - and not the notification of a task, which will appear in the Inbox>Unread Documents.

People often get confused between an actual task - which is an item that requires they click on something, and a notification - which is similar to an email (telling them to please log on and work on something).

Also, please include, for example, a screen shot of the inbox, and a screen shot of the technical workitem display. SAP Workflow has been around for years, so I sincerely doubt you'll need to debug the inbox.

Hi Susan,

It is a task, screenshot is below. The second line is the problematic workitem (I´m sorry user send it split).


Here is a screenshot of workitem. I do not see any problem.

Thank you for your help.

Is it possible that there is another workflow running on this same object? The screen shot from the user does not include Workitem ID. I would run SWI5 on that user, and get the Workitem ID for a task that is in her inbox, and then hunt for an active workflow that includes that WorkitemID.


Great! Please close the question then.
