CDS Views and Flexible AMDP Class

0


My Goal here (and make it a Blog Series) is to “bring” what’s new on SAP Workflow on S/4.

First of all, “calm down”, Classical Workflows (as they’re now called) still work on S/4 (using BOR, CL, etc.) and we got introduced to Flexible Workflows (so that the approval “process” can be configured by the business area using FIORI Apps), changing how you develop them (using TCode SWDD_SCENARIO).

This time i’m not gonna go deep in Flex WFs here, but bring you 2 “news” in the WF area on S/4.

1: CDS View I_WorkflowTask

The standard CDS View I_WorkflowTask brings you almost everything you need to know regarding Workflow Instances (as the first select is in the “old” SWWWIHEAD):

As you can see, it has several associations to other relevant WF related CDS Views (i suggest you to explore them). All are published:

Let’s bring an example, of a Flexible WF Process:

Every time you create a Flex WF using SWDD_SCENARIO, like the one below:
