Requisition Create mail workflow

This is my first attempt at workflow in SAP.

We have ERP 6.00

I am attempting to create an email notification when a purchase requisition is create at a plant.

I am using BO, BUS2009, Releasestepcreated event with a condition of a valid requisition number. This will not be the desired condition later, I just wanted to keep it simple so it would create an email to start.

I used the Send Mail Step with my email address to start with. I will need to make some rules on who receives the email based on the plant later.

I can manually trigger the workflow and receive the email, although when I create a requisition it does not trigger the workflow.

Am I using the trigger event wrong or not understanding the event all together?

I attempted to create an event from my requisition in SWUE and receive an error = container check: Mandatory import element RELEASECODE has no value.

Thanks in advance,

    For PR release workflow to work we need to PR release strategy defined which will decide the release code and pass it to the workflow.

    For more details please search sdn forum you can find many references.

    You should check in the event trace (SWEL, turn it on with SWELS) to see if your event is being created when you create a PR.

    If yes, good. If no, then you will have to make changes to the configuration.

    "Mandatory import element RELEASECODE has no value. "

    As the error suggests, you have to provide the event parameter RELEASECODE with a value.

      Thanks for the quick response

      I changed the workflow column for the codes to 1 and maintained the required information including assigning myself as agent. I have other workflows that populated my SAP inbox now. so I created a requisition and now the release stategy tab of the requisition shows my name as the processor although I did not receive an event in the trace log for the creation of the requisiton.

      Any additional suggestions? I am going to attempt to create an event with my new requisition to see if my error still shows.

    Hello !

    If workflow is not getting triggered on creating purchase requisition document from ME51N transaction, maintain the change document BANFand select the radio button "On create".

    If it is not still triggering the workflow, delete the above change document and create implementation for the BAdI ME_REQ_POSTED wherein call the function module SAP_WAPI_CREATE_EVENT to trigger the workflow.
