Hi All,

i am working purchase requisition Release workflow. I have developed a custom workflow for the same.

Now i have a requirement where i have to delete the workitem from the approver's inbox if the initiator changes the PR and send a new workitem to the approver with new PR.

How can i do this?

Please help me.

    Not to complicate the things, add the desired event under terminating events and it should take care of it.

    Hi Raj,

    You can go to tab events under basic data -> version-dependent

    Put your event and chose the receiver type 1 - cancel workflow

    Hi Raj,

    This is the standard way to cancel or cancel and restart workflow, and several other operations.

    You can see in tc swel that the receiver type is a method bi_event_handler~on_event in class cl_swf_run_handler*.

    Hi,

    The same requirement was asked very recently for PO workflow.

    To answer your question, place the Changed also as one of the triggering event. And in the workflow where you send witem to user 1, place a fork with 1 out of 2 outcomes where in branch 1 will have Wait for event "CHANGED" step and then below that, put a Process control where you cancel the workflow or set witems to obsolete.

    Pl search for the last 10 days threads for detailed solution

    Hope this helps.

    Dear experts,

    Just my doubt...

    If a PR creator changes the PR which initialized a new release strategy, I thought the work item would be automatically removed from the old approver's inbox and send to the new approver, even though just by using a standard PR workflow (without customization)?

    Thanks,

    YL

    • Hi All,

      I have put significantly changed from BUS2105 as terminating in the task that comes immediately after the workflow is triggered. But it is not working. But similarly when i tried with purchase order release workflow there is a event called changed in BUS2012. It is working fine. but there is no such event here.

      What should i do now?

      please suggest something.

      Thanks and regards,

      Raj
