HCM Process and Forms:Hiding sensitive employee information in the process overview

SAP standard uses WDA applications ASR_PROCESS_EXECUTE and ASR_PD_PROCESS_EXECUTE for handling HCM Process and Forms applications. These applications can also be configured in SWFVISU to launch P&F work items from UWL.

User can access information on people involved in the process from this application using link as shown below. On clicking process’s user ID, we see information like Marital Status, Address etc. listed. If there is a requirement to remove this information for all HCM P&F Processes ( without impacting the standard functionality at any other place ), it can be achieved using  WDA component configuration, application configuration and SWFVISU without any coding change.


Technical help shows application and component used.


Create a custom application configuration and mark fields like marital status, birth date etc. as invisible UI elements.

Create a custom application configuration and specify component configuration created in step above for address component used by the application.

Once done, the final step required will be to specify corresponding custom application configuration in SWFVISU per details below.


Application and application configuration to use




ASR_PD_PROCESS_EXECUTE/ < Name of application configuration for PD processes >




ASR_PROCESS_EXECUTE/ <name of application configuration for PA processes >

      I think doing it by personalization is more useful as it would not require changing the SWFVISU parameters. But thanks for pointing out to right application configuration.

      Thanks Kishore.

      The end user of a Web Dynpro application can influence, to a certain degree, the appearance of the view displayed in the browser. But here we need to hide sensitive information from all the users accessing portal and hence customization is required.
