Hi Experts,

Im new to work flow.

What are process can be done By using Transaction SWU3.


Points will be appreciated for all Answers.



SWU3 is a transaction that is used to maintain Automatic Workflow Customizing. Please make sure that all the Four Options are marked with a green Tick. This is generally maintained by the Basis team. This is very important for a Workflow to work perfectly.

&#61553; If many of the base workflow items are not configured, you can run the <Auto-customize> button. This step will automatically complete configuration such as:

&#61692; Creating a WF-BATCH background user id with SAP_ALL & SAP_NEW (SU01)

&#61692; Creating a logical RFC destination WORKFLOW_LOCAL_xxx (xxx=client) for the client (SM59)

&#61692; Check to see if the HR-PD T77* tables have been loaded. If the red lights are still on, run program RHSOBJCH, mark all entries and update selection.

Then rerun the program. The entries should have disappeared. Check SWU3 again. (SAP Note 60801)

&#61692; If the HR Plan Version has not been configured, it will be define the standard plan version of 01.

&#61692; Activate that HR objects can be used as recipients from SAP Office.

&#61692; The Workflow Administrator will be defined as the person who ran the auto-customizing.

&#61692; Automatic scheduling of two background jobs:

SWWDHEX – deadline monitoring job

SWWERRE – temporary error restart job

&#61692; The generic SAP user decision task is activated.

&#61692; PD control tables are checked for consistency.

&#61691; Note: The ‘no explicit number ranges’ item yellow squiggle line status never clears up. Just ignore!

&#61691; The Prefix Numbers for standard object types will not be maintained. This configuration should only be required on the development instances of SAP.
