Forward a work item to your own currently logged in SAP ID
By Anirban Bhattacharjee, KPIT Cummins and Infosystems
The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how you can forward a work item
to your own ID. This is not possible via
the standard transaction SWIA. For example, if your SAP ID is XYZZ and you
are logged into SAP via this ID, you would try to forward the work item to this
same ID by running SWIA. This transaction you are executing from this ID itself.
But SWIA will give you the prompt “You
cannot choose yourself as an agent” and not allow this forward.
Scenario: Many times when testing various
workflow developments, we need to forward a work item to our own ID for testing
purposes. Sometimes it becomes difficult to maintain our own ID in the Agent /
Approver tables as they might need Customizing Transport Requests or other
business constraints. Standard T-Code SWIA
does not allow forwarding the work items to your own ID. On such situations we
either need to forward the work item to some other test IDs or ask someone else
to do it for us.
any more, as with this technique you can even forward any work item to yourself
while you are logged in via that same SAP ID and be able to do your testing.
The steps are very simple
We will take a work item
and first try to forward it to the current logged in SAP ID (self ID) via T-Code
SWIA. This will not work.
We will then use a special
function module to forward this work item to our own logged in SAP ID.
