Hi Jagadeesh,

Welcome to Workflow.

Go to transaction SWU3.

The function Execute Automatic Workflow Customizing enables you to

maintain the standard settings for the Workflow Engine.

If the logical RFC destination WORKFLOW_LOCAL_xxx does not already

exist, it is created automatically. The user WF-BATCH is requested (including

password). WF-BATCH needs to be created in the current client

You can Maintain the RFC destination again by clicking on the Configure RFC

Destination icon.

The workflow runtime system always executes RFC calls in the logical destination

WORKFLOW_LOCAL_<Clnt>. Clnt stands for the 3-figure number of the client.

As a default, no logical destination exists for the RFC calls of the workflow system.

If user WF-BATCH doesnt exist, then you need to follow the below steps.

Create a user with the name WF-BATCH using the user administration function

(transaction SU01).

Create this user with the user type System (before 4.6C, the correct user

type was Background).

Assign this user the authorization profiles SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW.

Refer to SAP Notes 73160, 149344, 547419, and 429938.

Maintain the user address for this user.

Also maintain a forwarding address in the user master data. (this is the

sender's address when sending an e-mail)

You must maintain a logical destination in each client of your system.

When you execute the Configure RFC destination function, the system reads the

password in the user master record and enters it in the workflow destination.
