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'
wi_id = is_wi_details-wi_id
root_item = ls_root
workitem_does_not_exist = 1
others = 2.
if sy-subrc <> 0.
"Place the error message on the CT_RETURN...
"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...
workitem_id = ls_root-wi_id
simple_container = lt_cont.


So now we're all set! Start a few Workflows, and execute from SBWP and MyInbox app, you'll see the below results:
