Incorrect Link of Execute Work item in External Notification

Hello Experts,
I am working with the HCM Processes and Forms and used Standard Task TS17900101 in workflow, for Approve/Reject Forms.
Everything is working fine (form gets approved/rejected from UWL).
Now I configured, SWNCONFIG for sending the external notifications, and notifications are also being sent. But when pressing the "Execute Work Item" link from external inbox, I am getting the error:
"Service cannot be reached".
What has happened?
URL call was terminated because the corresponding service is not available.
Since, the task seems to be bound with Java web Dynpro application ApproveFormApp by looking at SWFVISU task visualization, Do I need to do any kind of addition in Services (SICF).
Or I am missing something in SWFCONFIG.
Kindly suggest asap.
Thanks & Regards,
Jimit Vadher

Hi Rob,
Thanks for the note number.
Let me tell you one more thing is, I have created customized Web Dynpro ABAP application, bound it with the newly created custom Task (for User decision), and used inside the Workflow.
So when I am sending the Notification of this custom task to External email, Correct link is being generated and working fine for agent.
But this is not working only for the standard task (TS17900101), I mentioned in my question above.
So still any service activation is pending? As per the Note, I checked ICF service and found it inactive.
Is activation required for ICF service, as custom notifications are already going & working fine.
Please suggest.
Thanks & Regards,

  • Execute Work Item: Invalid Link (SWN155)  for WD ABAP task ?

    Dear all,
    I have created a workflow task with WEBSERVICE object and configured task visualization with WD ABAP application.
    When i am executing the work item through  SAP Inbox , the application is triggering successfully.
    But when the work item is transmitted to Outlook through Extended notifications configuration i am getting the error
    Execute Work Item: Invalid Link (SWN155).
    We have already implemented the 1381164 and 1164090 OSS notes.
    We don't have UWL, the link need to be opened the WD application directly.
    I am unable to find the error.
    Please help to solve the issue.

    Have you checked OSS for possible fixes? It might that this was something that was clearly a bug, and not matter what you do, it will not work, unless you implement some fix.

  • Execute Work Item: Invalid Link (SWN155)

    I am trying to configure Extended Notifications. I read and implemented the entries according to blog [/people/|/people/]. The problem is that I get a "Execute Work Item: Invalid Link (SWN155)" in my mails. My question is what I need to add to parameters INBOX_LINK_URL and WD_HOST to make this work. Please provide examples if you have a working scenario.

  • Execute Work Items with Outlook  (WF)

    Abapers, where i can find information about execute work items with outlook??
    Can you suggest me some links?

    Take a look at the documentation for report RSWUWFML or RSWUWFML2.
    Or if you want a richer integration with Outlook, like e-mails disappearing when the work item is finished, then take a look at

  • Need 2 links in an Work item???

    Hi Experts,
    I am having a requirement as i need to display the 2 Links which should route to a T-Code via a work item... I can display the 1 link for a transaction VA03 based on the Display method in a business object and in the same work item i need to give a link to display the VC01N transaction which is related to another business object... So please guide me how can i display 2 Links in an Work item for 2 different transactions...

    The workitem will display a link for the default method of every BOR in the workflow (besides the workflow BOR).
    So if you want a link to transaction x, make a BOR and make x the default method of that BOR and instantiate that BOR in the workflow.
    Usually the BOR already exists; you'll just have to instantiate it with a relevant value in the workflow and possibly change the default method.

  • FM to execute work items of non active substitutions.

    Dear Experts
    I have a requirement to execute work items for non active substitution from a report program.
    I know the FM SAP_WAPI_EXECUTE_WORKITEM  or SWW_WI_EXECUTE to execute Workitems assign to me or my active substitutions.
    I need to execute for non active substitution.
    What is the way to do this, is there any FM?
    Appreciate your help and valuable suggestions.
    Many thanks and regards

    You should use BADI
    To identify those workitem and then call the FM you have found to complete the workitem.

  • Cannot execute work item from email after autoforwarding

    Hi All,

    Your help appreciated.

  • Problem with executing work item from the inbox

    Hello All,
       I'm able to send mails from R/3 to Outlook along with the attachment to execute the work item directly from the outlook.
    However upon clicking the Exectute work file I get an sap gui popup with the description " Not all data for SAP  GUI shortcut is available. System description and GUI start parameter are unknown. Entering the missing data."
    Clicking on the OK button, leads to another window for SAP logon details. After I chose the right system and on Clicking OK, it opens up the logon prompt. Entering the logo info opens up the work item correctly.
    We are on ECC 5.0 with SAP GUI 640 patch level 18 on it. Any suggestions about what am I missing to directly jump into an sap screen provided a session already is open in SAP.
    Thanks and Regards

    Hello Uday,
    Sounds like something is wrong in the SAPLogon <i>on the client PC</i>. The system sends out a shortcut, and when it's opened it does not relate to a unique entry in the saplogon. Either it's called differently or you have two entries for the same system with different parameters.
    Hope that helps,

  • Stop executing work item

    Hi All,
    When the work item is sent to substitute we need to check the level of substitute. if substitute is lower
    level than original approver then substitute  shouldn't  execute the work item instead it should be forward to higher/same level of original approver. Please help me out with your suggestions.

    "but not able to stop executing the work item from deleted substitutee and his inbox is also not refershing immediately, if I close thebusiness work place and re open it again, I am not seeing the forwarded work item. This is working correctly but I want the work item to be deleted from substitute's inbox when I forward the work item to another substitute. Please help me with your suggestions."
    This is just a problem with refreshing the inbox. It doesn't really matter because he won't be able to execute the workitem. The same thing would happen if he and someone else received a workitem and the other person executed it first. It's not a problem.
    Is this UWL or SBWP?

  • Link SC to Work Item

    SWWWIHEAD shows the Shopping Cart Tasks (WI_ID = W) and the Workflow Work Items. If I view Work Item the Cart number is in the text but this is not good enough. It's also under Available Ohjects>Process Objects>Reqt.cov. request.
    How can I link the Work Item to the Shopping Cart number?

    FM 'SWW_WI_CONTAINER_READ_OBJECTS' is great for going from the Work Items to the Cart.
    I still need to find a Table or Function Module to go from the Cart to the Work Item(s).
    Best I can think of at the moment is to build a Z table for ALL Carts and get a batch job to continually update it with the Work Items whenever new Carts are created or every x hours/minutes.

  • Execute Work Item from CRM 5.0 IC Webclient

    Hi all,
    I'm using ICWebClient in CRM 5.0.
    When I try to execute a work item in the ICWeb it displays a blank page in the work area (with a 0 on the upper left corner).
    I've configured the transaction launcher ITS url as explained in the help (http://<server name and full domain>:<port>/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/CRM_CIC_RABOX/!)
    I have activated all the ITS services and if I try to launch the webgui it works properly. Is there something missing? Has anybody any hints for me?
    Thank you,

    I've found a solution.
    I've been told that this problem is occuring
    because the Work Item ID is not being passed correctly to the BOR basedtransaction.
    The solution in my case is:
    (1) Goto SPRO -> Customer Relationship Management -> IC Web Client ->
    Basic Functions -> Transaction Launcher -> Configure Transaction
    Launcher (wizard)
    (2) Give the launch transaction id in the 'Entries' screen. The launch
    transaction id is Z_ACTION_EXECUTE_WORKITEM in my case.
    (3) Keep all the parameters same in the further screens until you reach
    the 'Transaction Parameters' screen
    (4) In this screen, the value currently being passed to Object Key is
    //selectedAUI Workitem/WI_ID. Change this to
    Goto last step and then say 'Complete'.

  • Link in a work item

    within a task in a workflow I am checking whether stock is available for a particular material. If not then a worktitem (user decision) is generated with a link in the body of the message. On clicking on the link the material details for that particular material need to be displayed. How do I go about it? Please help.
    Thanks and regards,

    Normally you won't have the link directly in the text. In SAP Workflow these link are normally attached under objects and attachments to the right in the workitem text.
    In order to get a llink there proceed as follows:
    1. Copy the decision task, and implement your own task in the decision step in your workflow (Remember to assign it to agents, or to make it a general task)
    2. Create a container element for your material on your task  (Define it as a business Object and the Business object for your material)  -  it should be an importing container element.
    3. Bind in the instance of your material from the Workflow container to the Task Container.
    Now you'll get a link to the instance of your business object, when your push this link you will execute the default method on the business object  -  usually display.
