6.Enable event Trace- this is an optional setting but it is highly recommended to activate

Go to Transaction SWELS

Select Switch on




Workflow Troubleshoot tips:


1. Check the Planner log

Transaction SLG1

Object : GRPC

Subobject : PLANNER and enter the planner ID, in the external Id field along with the timeframe


The mesage associated with the log can give more information


2.Event Trace

From the Event Trace , you can determine if the workflow is triggered successfully or not

Transaction-  SWEL

Input the Case ID into the Creator Object instance (Get the case ID from the Planner log)


This will help to verify the receipt of the work item


3. In addition to these, make sure the relevant agent determination is in place

SPRO->Governance, Risk and compliance->General Settings->Workflow->Maintain Custom-Agent Determination Rules


4. Based on the Agent determination rules, check role assignment


5. Maintain the fallback receiver using

SPRO->Governance, Risk and Compliance->General Settings->Workflow->Maintain Fallback Receiver

If this is maintained, the workflow will get notified to the fallback user, making someone aware of these tasks


6.If there is an issue where there is no recipient for the task when the fallback receiver is not setup. In that case, the user can go to transaction SWPR

Based on the data, fix the role assignment
