Extended Documentation: Workflow and Change Request Process

Dear MDG-community!

With the availability of SAP MDG 7.0 SP03 we also enhanced the documentation around the change request process. Now, there is a new topic on the help portal: Configuration of the Change Request Process

This topic and its related sub-topics

– explain the change request process

– tell you about step, step type and status

– suggest a notation for change request process flow

– show how to configure the rule-based workflow in detail

We look forward to hear your feedback!

Additionally I want to make you aware of the new edition of the SAP workflow book. It also includes an extensive chapter on MDG – A must-know for all MDG Gurus! (All authors donate their proceeds to Doctors without Borders).

See: Hot off the presses, Practical Workflow for SAP


All the best,

      Very cool that you spiced up the Workflow documentation. Also like the suggestion on the process diagramming solution. We use something similar in-house, and I consider this a must for any non-trivial process.

      Could you perhaps add an overview on the possible step results per process pattern? Especially for the UI dialog step. Or some table name where these settings are kept. (IIRC these outcomes are not customizable and depend on the step type)

      Best regards

      Dear Mr Lukasczyk,

      thanks for your feedback!

      For the action results of the proces pattern in the rule-based workflow, please see Process Pattern. Only the process pattern Activate and Activate (bypass snapshot) have defined outcomes. The action result of e.g. Call Synchronous Method depends on the implementation of the called method.

      The possible action results of a step depend on the step type, please see Configuration of the Change Request Process. There are standard step types and additionally customers can define own step types. This is why we decided to refer to the respective customizing activity to lookup the possible action results.

      Kind regards
