SAP NetWeaver CE 7.2 SP04 was released last month. In this blog I’d like to highlight new features in the areas of BPM and BRM.
Automatic refresh of UWL on task completion
When you complete a task and return to the Universal Worklist (UWL), the completed task will automatically disappear from the inbox. You no longer have to refresh the worklist manually.
Check the documentation on how to enable this feature.
New UME action for process start
The SAP_BPM_SuperAdmin role is no longer required to start processes and trigger intermediate message events. Instead there is a new UME action available called “SAP_BPM_TRIGGER_EVENT” which can be assigned to any user, group or role.
See note 1499008 for details.
Setting a log level for business log
It is now possible to set a log level for the business log. Available log levels range from “NONE” to “FULL” (default setting). Reducing the log level will limit DB size growth and improve performance, but will also affect some functionality. Please read note 1503951 and the corresponding documentation carefully before changing the log level.
Archiving of BRM business logs
Rules business logs can now be archived.
NWDS on Windows 7
Official support for NetWeaver Developer Studio 7.2 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 (64 bit) is planned to come soon.
NWDS already runs on these platforms in the NW 7.3 version, which is currently in ramp-up.
