UWL refresh problem for ABAP BOR custom attributes

Hi all,

we are facing an issue with an UWL iView. We wanted to display custom attributes from an ABAP Business Object (ABAP_BOR).

The feature is working but when an end-user receives a new task in his UWL view, he needs to click on the refresh button in order to have all the custom attributes correctly displayed.

We have only the problem with custom attributes, for the columns containing standard workflow decision task attributes, the data are displayed directly without the need to push the refresh button.

We are on EP 7 SPS11 and the back-end is an ECC6 version.

We have followed the methodology described in the How to configure and customize the Universal Worklist pdf document:

<CustomAttributeSource id="ABAP_BOR"
<Attribute name="COSTCENTER" type="string"
displayName="Cost Center"></Attribute>
<Attribute name="FIRSTDAYOFABSENCE" type="date"
displayName="First day of absence"></Attribute>
<Attribute name="LASTDAYOFABSENCE" type="date"
displayName="Last day of absence"></Attribute>

Do you have an idea where this problem come from and how it could be solved?

Thanks in advance and regards,

S├ębastien BODSON
