ESS Workflow 10000015 Approve request for changing address thru Portal ESS

Hi Experts,

We want to implement ESS workflow 01000015 u201Cchange (infotype 0006) Address will be blocking until approved/rejected by Administratoru201D. The workflow is trigger OK from R3, user creates a new address and IT0006 is blocking till administrator approve or reject.

What we want now is to trigger this workflow from Portal, but here is the problem:

1.- I do not see any option (button) for creating a new address from Portal iView, what else is missing??? I believe creating new address from Portal could trigger this workflow, but I am not sureu2026

2.- If the first option does not work I would like to trigger this workflow by the event u201CChangeu201D, so I need to edit the address. From R3 is blocking IT0006 OK, but from portal is not blocking the address at allu2026 What else is missing??? I do not know if this could be an issue from R3 or Portalu2026.

We already check u201CNote 495971 - Workflow 01000015 is not triggered when changing addressu201D and workflow is working ok only from R3.

    Currently there is no WF triggered when changing an address from ESS, althiugh you can use processes and forms

    to trigger one

    In your scenario you would need a modification to the FM and iview to trigger one!

      Hi Experts,

      I have been searching information about my problem and I found out that problem comes from authorization.... The workflow should be trigger when address has changed and the infotype is been locked. From R3 when any user "A" changes his/her address IT0006 blocked until other user "B" approve or reject Double Verification Principle (using S,E,D). Now this part is working OK from R3 but is not from ESS Portal. From EP is giving me an error : "! You have no authorization to Insert!" .... If I change the authorization level for "W" is not working at all..... How Can I fix this problem???

      Any help will be rewarded..... Regards

    Hi David,

    I'm new to ESS/MSS (from the portal perspective) and we're currently in a design phase for our client for ESS/MSS. I saw your question and I'm very interested to know how exactly a workflow should get triggered from the portal side for any ess/mss service. My client wants a workflow to get triggered when the marital status is changed in the personal details. Is it possible for you to explain what exactly has to be done on the portal side for me to achieve this? I don't have a clue as to what needs to be done on the backend, but atleast from the portal I need to know. Would be greatful if you could share some light on this.

    Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi David,

      I'm new to workflow and ess portal.

      I have a requirement in portal ESS, if employee add/edit infotype 0002,0006,0009,0021, and 0022, it needs approval process from HR Admin employee. HR Admin can approve / reject. And for each step (submit,approve,reject,cancel,resubmit), there is notification email to the employee and HR Admin.

      Can I use portal ESS standard Personnel Data (add/edit) to achieve that requirement? or should I create custom webdynpro application? Should I use workflow? or can I just use custom logic for its approval process?

      Is there any exit in ESS standard so that I can insert my custom logic?

      In your case,

      Is the blocking of the changes data only possible in infotype 0006? since they are already provided in standard workflow?

      Is the blocking also possible in infotype 0002,0009,0021,0022? If possible, how can i achieve it?

      How we can use fm hr_infotype_operation for creating new register blocked for approve/reject?

      Can we get the list of all register? (for approval list to the approver)

      Is the approve request in can also be implemented portal ESS standard application for infotype 0002,0009,0021, and 0022?

      Thank you 😊
