Universal WorkList (UWL) items forward

Hi all.

When a user goes to forward a workflow to someone, you get the "Forward" button. When doing the search for a person, a list is returned. Where is this list created from? We want to limit the list to be only managers, but right now, we are retrieving the whole corporation, and this is unacceptable. How can someone control the people/employees that show up in the search list? Is there a certain authorization that goes with it, or an RFC that is called?

Thanks a lot.

I didn't want to chirp up without concrete example for you. For your request, I am not 100% sure. Your only option I can think off off hand is to look at the UWL Configuration (ie. the XML config) that is possible. I know you can config "how" a task/work item as viewed (the "view") as well as how it is launched. However, I am not so sure you could limit the "forward" list. I believe it is just simply looking at the users in the UME for the portal to determine what/who is possible. In any event....if I were in your shoes, I would look at the SAP Press "white book" on UWL Configuration.....get the author's name (I forget right off) and contact him (he is VERY open to contact via email and he knows the UWL inside out).....that's just how I would follow up. Hope it helps.
