How does the PO WF trigger?


Hi Guys,

The question may seem simple, but I am looking for a tough solution. 😊

I am aware that we have BUS2012-RELEASESTEPCREATED as the triggering event for the PO Workflow. and in SWETYPV we mantain the link between the workflow and the event. All this is working absolutely fine.

I also understand the fact that when a PO (that has only one release strategy which is released via Workflow) is created and saved, the event RELEASESTEPCREATED gets published ( i have verified this in SWEL) and hence WF triggers.

Our requirement is to stop this triggering of the workflow for a specific set of purchase orders, all of which are created via a customized transaction. We are trying not to make any changes from the workflow level to inhibit its execution (by using start conditions, etc). So we would like to know if there are any possibilities that we can add code between the saving of the PO and the triggering of the workflow so that it prevents the latter. Does any one have any clue how this can be achieved?

Any thoughts/suggestions are most welcome. Thankyou for your time!
