SOST issue

Hi,

viewed many threads but no luck.

Issue is I have a WF which sends mail at a step to recipients Outlook.

This step I have a program-exit which uses the class to send mails.

Now this program-exit triggers whenever workitem is created for that step.

But a strange thing happening.

Say there are 2 approvers (sequence, 1 approves then only 2nd guy receives).

In SOST I see approver-1 recieved mail but approver-2 (after 1 approving it) didnt show in SOST. but I have reminders being sent and strangely the approver-2 receives the reminder mails. WF log shows correct email in first approval step and reminder step.

Now SCOT is correct, SMPT is correct, email id fetching and maintained is correct.

This happens on some cases only.

I was wondering if we have any tcode other than SOST to check why some cases didnt register in SOST?

  • Might be a security/authorization issue at the time of the second work item creation. Check if the second work item creator is the previous approver. The reminder emails work because they most probably are sent by the WF-BATCH user.

    It is a pretty easy/simple to deactivate the sending of mail using the exit and configure extended notifications.

    Cheers.

  • Hi Mike/Ramki,

    the same WF in quality works fine without any issues, just in PRD this issue arise and that too few cases.

    Thanks,

  • I don't understand? It's broken, it needs to be fixed. What more justification does one need to change it?

    Just a thought - is Approver1 ever also Approver2?

    Can you attach a technical workflow log of one that has gone astray?

    Hi

    in this case the sapconnect interface was not called at all. so the issue should be before you call the send interface.

    Best regards
