Changing UWL configuration --> best approach?

Active Contributor

we will implement UWL once going live with travel management. I've never done any configurations on the UWL and wanted to ask what approach should be taken for alterations.

For example: I want the manager using the UWL NOT to be able to assign Substitutors himself, I want to disable this option. So my first naive idea was, I'd download the uwl-standard.xml, delete the action-block "launchSubstitutionManager" and re-upload the file. Would this be working? Is this a good approach? I've also read forum entries where people had overlapping entries using "priority" to solve such matters.

Can anyone elaborate on this and guide me a bit? I want to avoid breaking my portal )

Cheers, Lukas

Hi Luke,

Definitely you might have checked this [link|]. If not please check it.

It has been mentioned that

1. On the Portal, choose Content Administration>Portal Content>Content Provided by SAP >End User Content> Standard Portal Users -->iViews >>Universal Worklist.

2. Under Property Category choose UWL.

3. Configure the UWL iView properties.

iView property name : Display substituted user selector

Provides support to allow substitution of tasks by other users. If substitution is not desired it can turned off through this property.

Note: This property is only displayed, if there are items which are handled by the user as substitute.

I hope you can turn off this property.

Hi Raja,

thanks a ton. I must confess I didn't know of the possibility to manipulate the WD4J via these iView properties and I didn't find this myself since I was probably too obsessed with changing the UWL XML Configuration Files ;´-).

I could achieve all my requirements (so far) within minutes using the iView parameters!

thanks again & best regards!
