Workflow configuration.

Hi All,

Our landscape details about the on-going ESS & MSS implementation are as follows:

Portal version: EP 7

SAP version: ECC 5.0

Please address my following concerns;

1. what are the standard workflows available for ESS & MSS perspective in mySAP ERP 2004(ECC5.0)

2. For instance, where the workflows configurations are done for an individual iview - in XSS or in mySAP ERP 2004(ECC5.0).

3. If we develop custom workflows, we can able to configure it to any ESS & MSS iViews based on our requirement.

Kind regards,

Vijay

    1. http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2004/helpdata/en/5b/76a6d7fd3a4e91bfb422405bf3e04d/frameset.htm

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2004/helpdata/en/cf/917b401c976d1de10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    Refer to this help. It describes what all services require workflow for ESS and MSS.

    2. Some workflows can be set to trigger from SPRO configuration and some directly from the program. There are no much differences between ECC 5.0 and ECC 6.0 workflow templates for ESS and MSS.

    3. Basically, workflow templates are triggered by Events within FM. You can attach custom workflows to events too in SWETYPV.

    Better take workflow resource help to manage this. Otherwise it would be complicated if you havent worked on it earlier.

      Vijay,

      If you want your custom workflow to start on a Create in "Change Own data".

      Then you can check transaction SWEHR2 for Infotype 0105 Communication and see that the object is EMPLCOMM.

      You can then set the event that you want to be raised by the update operation performed on the infotype. ( performed in ESS or R3 )

      Next step is goto transaction SWETYPV and assign Object EMPLCOMM Event CREATED to your custom workflow.

      Because you want to connect the workflow to a change on EMPLCOMM you have to make your own CHANGED event and connect that to the update operation in SWEHR2.

      I hope your workflow consultant can help you with this.

      Kind regards,

      Reinhard Sportel

    there is no WF for change own data, It calls the Function module for saving data through class.
