EHP5 Unwanted "CONFIRM" action in the Ext Notifications Email

Hi, We just went live with EHP5. What I need to know is how to prevent the unwanted CONFIRM popup in the extended notifications generated email itself after the user's decision for Reject or Accept. OSS note? Enhancement needed? Something in the workflow that can be done?

EHP4 we didn't have any CONFIRM when the user pressed accept/reject from the email - they are used to just getting the "Workitem executed with decision..." message in an IE window.

In the decision workflow task the CONFIRM option is OFF - this is the old "gui" way to confirm after processing - we've never wanted to use it.

I'm looking through the code now to find the trigger... I truely don't want to have to enhance SWN_SELSEN again but we may have to in order to get rid of this ugly CONFIRM situation. I already had to enhance swn_selsen to get around the sso issues from email...

EXTENDED NOTIFICATIONS EMAIL below....if they select APPROVE in EHP5 it's giving the below CONFIRM/CANCEL option now as well. I have to get rid of this step...

New CONFIRM / CANCEL --- We don't want this... 😔

Thanks for any help or direction here.

    Well here I am replying to my own post...

    I'm trying something in the CL_SWN_BSP_WI_EXECUTE_CO class by setting the attribute m_surpress_confirmation to "X"...we'll see....looks more promising than changing SWN_WIEXECUTE...

    Fun today..

    Hi Sue,

    Unfortunately that's not the answer. I've run into a hard wall or boondoggle if you will. My users do not want this confirm in the EMAIL generated by extended notifications - my task complete is not on and this doesn't influence the extended notifications email.

    SAP brought in an OSS note that fixes a security breach per Kevin O'Donoghue " With note 1587581 we introduced this change. Purpose of note 1587581 is the introduction of protection against cross side request forgery (XSRF) according to note 1458171 When delivering this note we accepted the change of the behaviour."

    So SAP brought in the confirm to the email with EHP5 whether you want it or not. However, I've been able to enhance class CL_SWN_BSP_WI_EXECUTE_CO to supress the confirm as noted above. I'm waiting on SAP response to let me know what the RISK of this is to security.....again, my users would want this change but my security team will likely so no...

    I'll let you know the outcome...thanks!
