Standard Task TS17900100: copied to custom task and adding fields

Former Member

I 'm trying to implement HCM forms with workflow with approval process.

part of this exercise, copied standard task TS17900100 to a custom task and trying to add more fields.

[form_field name 4, Form field value 4 etc...]

but when I included this task, into workflow, I am getting only 3 fields.[Standard task having 3 field parameters].

Please suggest here

If we want to import more fields from FPM form, how we can achieve that?

my scenario is execute the FPM form in [using Webdynro screen] once we select 'SEND' trigger the workflow.

There I need to capture few fields from FPM into workflow-TS17900100.[as in Workflow standard Template -change in pay]

I don't know about TS17900100 specifically but in order to add fields to a task you need to first add them to the object method the task is based on (enhance the object Enhancing Object Types: Inheritance and Delegation - SAP Business Workflow: Reference Documentation ... )

only then you can use them in the task.

And again, I don't know about FPM forms (kindly explain), but usually to start a workflow from a screen/form/other program I will raise an event by calling FM 'sap_wapi_create_event'. any data I want to transfer to the workflow can be added to the event container (less useful) or stored in the DB and accessed as an object attribute.

thanks for your reply,

Here I am using class to trigger the workflow, there is no BO attached to my requirement.

since it is Infotype operation.

Please help

Hi Durg,

Ok we've done this before and its been discussed on SCN before.  What we did on site was take the standard static class/method in TS17900100 for reading the form fields, then simply created our own custom class wrapper method that called the standard static class/method multiple times for a maximum number of fields that we wanted to read. Last time I did this we simply set it up so we could extract 15 fields at once and called the standard class/method 5 times. But you could use the same approach for any multiple of calls that you wanted.

Simple, effective and made the workflow flowchart much tidier.
