Building a Payment Blog Workflow for Vendor Payments Part 2

Introduction:

 

https://blogs.sap.com/2019/01/28/building-a-payment-block-workflow-process-for-vendor-payments/

In continuation to the earlier blog now the second part is to design workflow for the Business object BUS2081 POSTED Event.

 

Goto transaction SWDD and follow below steps to design a workflow:

  1. Create a New workflow and set Posted event of BUS2081 as starting event of workflow

 

2. Create a step to check the posted document is blocked for payment or not.

 

3. if invoice is booked with a payment block then set the approval hierarchy level using container operation and fetch for workflow approvers:

 

 

4. Create a sequential approval block so that each approver in the list approves the invoice.

 

 

 

Create an activity to display invoice and a decision box to approve or reject invoice.

 

Create another decision step after exiting block for final approval authority to approve the invoice.

if a user approves the decision then he has to remove the Payment block from Transaction MRBR and the workflow step will end after removing the payment block.

 

Conclusion:

Whole workflow is now set to trigger once an invoice is posted in system with a payment block flag and after all approvals the invoice will be ready to be cleared from f-53 transaction.
