Alternative to “discover” Workflow executions coming from FIORI MyInbox and SBWP
In this Blog i’m gonna show you a alternative to a “common” question among the community: How do i know if a Workflow was executed coming from FIORI MyInbox or SBWP?
Well, there are a few ways to do that… This is one of them, a “coding” approach.
So let’s get to it!
I’ve created a simple Workflow that looks like this:
As you can see, a simples decision task, following by a condition check and 2 message actions.
On the decision task, just a simple decision:
Created a variable called GV_FIORI on the Workflow Container, it will receive a X when executed from FIORI.
So here, i’m checking if there is a X to it, it’s from FIORI, if not it was SBWP.
The FIORI Send mail action:
The SBWP Send mail action:
Our Workflow is all set!
Now, to be able to “know” if a Workflow came from FIORI, we have to implement the /IWWRK/BADI_WF_BEFORE_UPD_IB BADI. This BADI get’s executed only when it comes from a FIORI Call, so inside of it we’ll place our code to deliver a X on the GV_FIORI container variable of the Workflow process. So now the WF instance can be aware where it came from…
So i’ve created a implementation (you can find out more about the process here):
Placed my Workflow ID and step ID on the filter:
So now let’s implement the method:
Place the code below on it:
method /iwwrk/if_wf_wi_before_upd_ib~before_update. data: lt_cont type table of swr_cont, ls_root type swwwihead, ls_cont type swr_cont. "Get the parent Workitem... call function 'SWI_GET_ROOT_WORKITEM' exporting wi_id = is_wi_details-wi_id importing root_item = ls_root exceptions workitem_does_not_exist = 1 others = 2. if sy-subrc <> 0. "Place the error message on the CT_RETURN... exit. else. "Write data to the variable ls_cont-element = 'GV_FIORI'. ls_cont-value = 'X'. append ls_cont to lt_cont. "Write variable back to the Container... call function 'SAP_WAPI_WRITE_CONTAINER' exporting workitem_id = ls_root-wi_id tables simple_container = lt_cont. endif. endmethod.
So now we’re all set! Start a few Workflows, and execute from SBWP and MyInbox app, you’ll see the below results:
