    Do you know if there are any SCP Wf Admin tools available?  Thinking about things like reassigning a task to a new Agent, correcting Context data before restarting the wf?

    I like what I see on SCP Wf but to use it in a production environment we do need admin tools.

      Yes, we do have the admin tools for SAP CP Workflow. Through the admin tools, you can assign reassign users to tasks, suspend/resume/terminate the workflow instance, retry workflows which are in an error state, etc. But to do that one would need WorkflowAdmin role assigned to him/her. Refer to the help document for more information on that:
