Maintain Runtime Environment - Configure RFC Destination


When i first started working with workflow, i entered SWU3 and tried to configure it. My problem was with the configure of the RFC destination. I read on the Internet that I should enter the WF-BATCH as Background User and its password. I done that but it gave me an error. So i entered my user and my password.

The configure went "green" and I thought it is going to work. I made some tests, create some workflows and entered my user as the agent of the workflow. It worked. When i tried to send to another user a work item, I had to configure SWU3 on his user. I entered my user as the background user in the Configure RFC Destination and the configure went green. I managed to send him a work item, so i thought it is ok.

After that i exit from SAP for a couple of minutes. Then, i entered again and i was prompted to change my password. I think this is strange. I changed my password and i tried again to send a workitem to the user i previously configured. Surprise, the user had the Configure RFC Destination red, and i had to change again the password with my new one. Again, the configure went green and the work items reached the destination. But again i exit from SAP, and afterwards i was prompted again to change my password.

And so on. I know that the standard procedure is to to enter WF-BATCH as the background user. I tried that. I selected Configure RFC Destination and then i click Automatic Workflow Customizing. Then i selected yes, so that the password will be syncronized. But after that I received the message that the syncronization of passwords has failed.

So i thought it will work if i enter my user as the background user. But as you can see, it gives me huge headaches.

Thank you very much,
