workflow tasks in derived roles

Former Member

I am involved in a EHS Product Compliance project that uses workflow.

In PFCG I assign a standard workflow task to a role under the workflow tab.  If I go to tcode PFTC, type in the workflow task number then navigate to: Additional Data->Agent assignment->Display, the user account assigned to the role is listed and clicking the Overall View button I see the role assignment.

The problem is when I derive the role.  In this case the tasks show up under the workflow tab, but the derived role is not listed under PFCT and this role does not allow my end user to process workflows.

Are there any known limitations using workflows in derived roles?

Hi Kerry,

To get the derived role listed under PFTC, go to transaction PFTC_CHG and manually add the role assignment.

Hello Savitha,

What you proposed will work, but that defeats the who purpose of deriving roles.  I want to add the workflow tasks to the base role and then have my 30 derived roles updated automatically.
