ac_container and actor_tab

Hi Experts,

How to use AC_CONTAINER & ACTOR_TAB tables in RULE in workflow.

I came to know that ac_container is for Input and actor_tab is for output. Can you please explore about these 2 tables.

If possible give me an example

    AC_CONTAINER will have all the container elements that you want to make use in determining the approves you will have all those elements populated in this importing table parameter.

    you can access the container elements by making use of MACROS


    ACTOR_TAB is some thing you populate the agents based on the object type




    OBJTYPE - "S"


    For example you can check the rule 168 from PFAC transaction

    • Hi

      You should not give any input to the function module you have to assign the rule in the Workflow step which you want to send for user action.. You cannot populate the ac_container parameter. You have to define the binding from workflow container to rule container.

      If you are looking to debug function module from se37 then what you can do is click CTRL+F7 and it opens in debug mode then you try to chnage the values of the container elements in the debug mode.

      O = Organization

    AC_CONTAINER & ACTOR_TAB both are use for output. Nothing is for input.

    If you want to pass input then you have to use like PAVAN mention.
