Fiori My Inbox – Step 2. Test the workflow in the backend before implementing the app

Please find series of documents in the SAP Fiori – My Inbox.

Before implementing the My Inbox app, please make sure the workflow works fine in the backend.

You should ask customer:

  1. Which transaction triggers the workflow and what are required transaction data for testing.
  2. Who is the user triggering the workflow
  3. Who is the user approving it in the inbox

In this document, I use Absence request workflow which is a sample workflow in SAP BASIS.

Check the workflow inbox.

Transaction: SBWP

I do not have any workitem in the workflow inbox.


Run the transaction which triggers the workflow:

Transaction: SWXF

Enter the data and Save.


The workflow should be triggered and the approver should receive a workitem in the inbox.

Execute the workitem:

Transaction: SBWP

The sample workflow sends the workitem to all possible users and same user who has requested gets the workitem.

It is not correct for business rule but it is a sample workflow for easy testing.

Select the workitem and execute



If your workflow does not work, you should fix before implementing my Inbox.

      Hi Masayuki Sekihara,

      Thank you for your series blogs. They did help me a lot to configure "My Inbox".

      But I met one problem. I added one Leave Request through tcode swxf. However, there is no record in Inbox. Could you please help me check why this happen? Did I miss any configuration step?

      I found TS30000016 has no Agent Assignment and then these task are all set as General Task. But there is still no record in Inbox after I created a new absence record.

      Thank you very much for your help.

      Hi Alex,

      Please post it as a question.

      Check the workflow log in the SWI2_FREQ. Triggering event may not be active.

      Regards, Masa
