After executing workitem in Portal inbox, SWNWIEX screen is opening


We are using Portal 7.3 inbox to process workitems. When we process these items, 2 windows are opening, one for approvement, other one is

SWNWIEX tcode, displaying 'Bitte Fenster schlieu00DFen' - 'Close Window' screen. Is there an option to close this window automatically or force not to open?

Thanks in advance.

    SWNWIEX is used to execute the workitem unless there is specific configuration for the workflow task in question. By Inbox, do you mean UWL? What workflow tasks are involved? There is a technical reason for the Close Window remaining open, see SAP note 1685447 for details. My recommendation is to properly configure the execution for the workflow task, then SWNWIEX won't be used.

    Hi Berrin, Samuli is correct. Usually all you need to do is to go to the UWL Admin Iview in the Portal and Re-register the system alias to update the UWL configuration, and then clear the UWL Cache. Every time you create new TS objects, it's a good idea to use the "Re-register" option to make sure the UWL knows the appropriate launch mechanism to use depending on the configuration of the task.

    I'd also suggest you familiarize yourself with transaction SWFVISU as that is another common way to change the launch mechanism for tasks (again after you have changed these settings you need to Re-register/Clear Cache).

    Hope that helps.
