Technical Integration of Business Workflows in Process Visibility – Overview

I recently added a Business Workflow for a Demo and a training in a Process Visibility Scenario  for Workflow Monitoring purposes. In the demo I used a S/4HANA OP System. In this blog I will illustrate the technical Integration and what needs to be done to get a preconfigured Live Process Dashboard also for Business Workflows.

Thanks a lot, to our teams and colleagues helping to configure the integration and realize the demo!

The following steps need to be processed.

1. Activate services, run setup, get users and authorizations in your subaccount and S/4HANA System

This is an overview with a demo scenario to test the technical integration. I will probably come up with details for some of the steps. Any questions? Let me know!
