Integrating Visual Composer Model with UWL Part 3/3

Integrating Visual Composer Model with UWL

SAP EP 7.31 SP9, ERP 6 EHP4.

The background:

You have a workflow, for instance a basis workflow defined in SAP ERP 6 backend.

This workflow triggers work item creation.

SAP EP is set up and Universal Work List (UWL) is connected to the backend system.

Workflow work items appear in UWL as tasks.


You want to trigger a Visual Composer model to handle the UWL task instead of launching a HTML SAP Gui windows.

This blog will be split in several parts:

Details for Action Launcher


<Action name=”launchVisualComposer” groupAction=”” handler=”IViewLauncher” returnToDetailViewAllowed=”yes” launchInNewWindow=”yes” launchNewWindowFeatures=”resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,directories=no”>


<Property name=”workitemId” value=”${item.externalId}”/>

<Property name=”iviewDynamicParameter” value=”WI_ID=${item.externalId}”/>

<Property name=”iview” value=”pcd:portal_content/pcc_portal_application/fr.ugap.geops.UGAP_GEOPS/ugap.geops.Sites_et_Demandes/fr.ugap.geops.uwl_task_VC”/>


<Descriptions default=”Launch Demo IView”>


<Description Language=”fr” Description=”Traiter la demande VC”/>




The <Property name> value for the iview contains the page position.


‘Launch Demo IView’ triggers VC model execution.

Each time UWL XML configuration is changed you need to clear the cache.
