Leave workflow not working through SBWP but working through portal

Hi we have leave workflow .

As we have maintained following tasks in SWFVISU with respective parameters.




The workflow is working fine through ESS portal but through SAP SBWP it gives information as below:

"The request cannot be started from the Business workplace".

But in portal when manager clicks on workitem for approving the leave of an employee,he can see all the leaves of employees reporting to him and can approve any other employees leave who is not related with the workitem but reporting to respective manager. This is creating an issue in our case.

Can we encorporate this WF from SBWP? or can we avoid to see other reportees leave request in the portal ?.

Removing the parameters from SWFVISU will not work.

Is there any way on this?.

    Hi Kalpesh,

    Try searching the forum for this. As far as I can remember from previous posts is this the standard behavior for these tasks. Only available from UWL and with the option to release all leave requests.

      Yes you are right.

      This Standard task is only suitable for Webdynpro application,

      But Do we have anything from SAP standard which tells us that this task is only run from portal UWL and not through SBWP.If you find then please provide the same.

      As I found the threads only in SDN regarding this issue.

      and client wants the samething from SAP.

      I want to show this to client.And SAP replied back this is a conuslting issue.But i will re raise the issue to SAP.

    As stated in SAP Note 487649 some Workflow functions cannot be access via the Web and this includes 'leave request'.
