Consistency and Extended Checks for Workflow Template and Tasks
By Anirban Bhattacharjee, KPIT Cummins and Infosystems
The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how to perform Extended Checks and Consistency
Checks for a Workflow Template
and Standard Tasks.
and need: These checks are similar to extended
checks and code inspector checks that are performed on any ABAP Code, Function
Module or Class.
SAP has provided standard transactions to execute these checks. We will discuss
these transactions in detail.
transactions are SWU7 and SWU4.
SWU7 is used for checking Workflow
The entry screen of SWU7
looks as shown. We enter the Workflow Template ID of the workflow which we want
Execute the program. The output is as
We can see the program prompts in this
case that there is one INFORMATION message: No start events or start
We can run this program with another
workflow template that has more steps and see the following output
We can thus see that the program
analyses each step of the workflow and displays the results.
The program also displays multiple
check results at the same time. Simply enter the range of workflow template IDs
at the select option in selection screen.
This will give the following output
We can thus correct and tune the
workflow to make its performance much better.
SWU4 is used for checking Standard
The entry screen of SWU4
looks as shown. We enter the Standard Task ID of the Task which we want to check
The output of the program is shown
We can see that the program returned
the Standard Task to be completely consistent. It would have captured and
displayed any errors / warnings / information accordingly.
Advantages of these transactions:
These transactions perform many more
extended checks which you will get to know when you run them for different
workflow templates and standard tasks that you might have created in the system.
These transactions are very important to analyze with certainty that the
workflows will have a stable runtime environment.
Conclusion: We have demonstrated successfully the standard transactions provided by SAP to perform Consistency and Extended checks on Workflow Templates and Standard Tasks.
