entry in SOST not consisting of workitem id of the task


Hello Experts,

We r upgrading from 4.7 to ECC 6.0. The process works fine in 4.7 but not in ECC 6.0.

A workflow consists of 1st step as user decision followed by several steps. When it is executed from a FM, WF gets triggered.

In 4.7, there r 2 entries generated in SOST. Both the entries point to the work item id of the task ie the user decision step. The workflow is seen in ready state. The task/user decision step is classified as general task. So another user can also login and exceute the task ie approve and reject the decision. This is fine

In 6.0 this doesn not happen. Only single entry is created in SOST tcode, which consists of the workitem id of the workflow and not of the task / user decision step as a result when any other user tries to login. As a result, he faces an error "The workflow cannot be restarted in started mode".

After analysis, i found the entry in SOST is faulty or it should consist of the workitem id of the task and not of the workflow.

But i do not know how to correct the entry in SOST or what amendment should be made in SAP workflow.

Please help me with this. this is an urgent issue and needs to be solved asap.

Any help is appreciated. Please let me know if any details need to be furnished in order to understand the scenario.
