Starting a workflow with inbound Wf-XML

Former Member

I read on that a workflow can be started when an inbound Wf-XML document arrives. Can anyone clarify where the XML actually arrives?

Will the XML arrive at the integration layer (in our case SAP XI), and XI will have to trigger the workflow, or will the XML somehow arrive at the workflow? Can anyone clarify this?

Any help is, as usual, greatly appreciated.

Hi Thomas,

Wf-XML was implemented when XI wasn't even a glint in SAP's eye. The message arrives in the SAP Web AS and triggers a workflow directly (or responds to an incoming workflow request message).

Exception: prior to the 6.10 release of the Web AS the incoming messages are received in an ITS.

Best regards,
