New feature in SAP Cloud Platform Workflow – Forms

As of the release in September 2018, SAP Cloud Platform Workflow has a major new feature, namely forms. With workflow forms building beautiful form (Fiori) UIs for workflow user tasks is becoming as easy as building workflows.

Due to its tight integration into SAP Cloud Platform Workflow, forms increases the overall developer productivity: The new form editor integrated within the workflow editor in SAP Web IDE Full-Stack offers support for modeling simple form or approval UIs, without any custom SAPUI5 or JavaScript development involved. Furthermore, rapid prototyping of workflows including user tasks has never been that easy.

Simply enable the workflow service and you are good to go. It is enabled? Great, you are all set. The form editor is available in your SAP Web IDE Full-Stack as part of the workflow editor feature.

Check out the Getting Started Tutorial to learn more about how to use workflows and forms together. For a deep dive into workflow forms read the documentation to get further information.

      I have created a quick example with Yes/No buttons.  There is nothing passed back to the context to tell Wf which button was pressed.

      Hello Andy,

      the decisions are not passed back to the workflow context but into the user tasks's properties. Have a look into Access the Decisions chapter which explains how to access them within a workflow.

      Best regards,

      Joachim
