 1.2.9 Determining the Form Scenario in the Workflow Container


In this lesson, you determine for the entire workflow template the form scenario that you want to use. Use the workflow container element FORM.

Note Note

We recommend that you always enter the form scenario in the workflow container , as described in this lesson. The information is then available in the entire workflow, through the form scenario, even if a form scenario is not defined for one of the workflow steps.

In addition, you can enter the form scenario in the workflow step container , as described in the previous lesson. If you do this, the workflow uses the step-specific form scenario for this step, and not the form scenario from the workflow container.

End of the note.


  1. Open the workflow container for your workflow template. Access the Workflow Container area at the bottom left of the Workflow Builder .

  2. Double-click on the Form row.

    The Change Container Element dialog box appears. The Data Type tab page contains the ABAP Dictionary Data Type HRASR00_FORM_KEY_ELEMENT for this element.

  3. Determine the form scenario that you want to use, and its characteristics. To do this, choose the Initial Value tab page.

  4. Select the ZTFS form scenario. Use the input help for this.

    The input help lists all form scenarios that you have defined in Customizing or that are part of the standard system.

  5. Choose version ZTFS 00000 .

    Note Note

    Note that the system does not display the entry 00000, it displays an empty field.

    End of the note.
  6. Leave the Do Not Save field empty.

    Note Note

    You do not need the Do Not Save field. You use it if you implement more than one form scenario in a workflow template.

    End of the note.
  7. Choose Apply .

  8. Save and activate your workflow template.
