Controlling Substitute in UWL

Hello

Regarding the substitute functionality in MSS - UWL, the manager can set anybody as a substitute.

But we wanted to restrict the manager to be able to select the substitute only amongest his/her peers.

Is it possible and where?

Thanks & Regards

Raghu

    Hi,

    If you have such requirement i think you have to design the custom screen (WebDynpro) for that i guess.

    And you can control the substitution using

    The standard table for abap workflow where the substitution rules and users are stored is - HRUS_D2.

    And the standart bapi is to define the substitution is: SWL_SUBSTITUTION_DEFINE.

    Note: I have no idea of how much it is safe to touch these standard tables.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    We also had a look at this and we were not able to do this since the Portal UME is used in the search functionality. People you can select from are hence not fetched using a RFC call to the backend and no customizing for the list is possible.

    If you want this functionality you should start changing the standard WebDynpro of the substitution screen to include your own programmed substitute-search functionality...

    Kind Regards,

    Igor

    Hello Igor & Sri,

    Thanks for your inputs.

    So I am concluding this thread saying that "It is not possible to control the substitute selection, without webDynpro change.

    As an alternative I have created a background program that checks this substitute table and send an email to the manager, if the substitute does not satisfy the requirements to be a substitute.

    Thanks & Regards
