UWL filtering


We need to configure UWL which will display only selected items.

Suppose we have configured UWL for ESS in R/3 system, then i should be able to see only the Leave Request pending in UWL and not all the pending requests(like cash claims,reimbursement,travel request, cab request etc).

Is this filtering of pending requests possible?

Please reply ASAP.

    Ypu should modify the UWL XMl file to display work items from only one task. First try to find out the task number of the leave request work items then modify the XML file as per the steps below. Lets say ur taks number is TS123456789

    Log on to the portal with System Admin rights

    System Administrationīƒ  System configuration->Universal Worklist and workflow->

    Universal Worklist Administration. Click on Start button

    Select uwl.standard(Low) from dropdown and click on Download XML button to save the XML file giving any other name say uwl.custom

    Copy the below lines in the downloaded xml file.Ensure that these lines fall in between

    the two tags <ItemTypes> u2026..</ItemTypes>

    <ItemType name="uwl.task.webflow.TS123456789" connector="WebFlowConnector" defaultView="DefaultView" defaultAction="viewDetail" executionMode="Pessimistic">

    <ItemTypeCriteria externalType="TS123456789" connector="WebFlowConnector"/>


    Search for DefaultView in the XML. You should see a View tag as below

    <View name="DefaultView" selectionMode="SINGLESELECT" width="98%" supportedItemTypes="uwl.task" u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026..>

    Modify the supportedItemTypes as below

    <View name="DefaultView" selectionMode="SINGLESELECT" width="98%" supportedItemTypes="uwl.task.webflow.TS123456789"

    After modifying the XML file upload the same from UWL administration
