Configuring the UWL in a Federated PortalLocate this document in the navigation structure


The Universal Worklist (UWL) gives users a unified and centralized way to access their work and relevant information. It collects tasks and notifications from multiple provider systems - SAP Business Workflow, Collaboration Task, Alert Framework and Knowledge Management Recent Notifications - in one list for one-stop access.

More information about the Universal Worklist:

Configuring the Universal Worklist (Administration and configuration for the Universal Worklist (UWL) in an enterprise portal)

This section deals specifically with the configuration of the UWL in a federated portal network.

If you are running a federated portal network in your system landscape, there are three ways to make the Universal Worklist (UWL) available in the consumer portal:

  • Run the UWL directly in the consumer portal.

    We highly recommend this option because it is much easier to maintain.

  • Run the UWL in the producer portal. There are two ways to make the UWL from the producer portal available to the consumer portal:

    • Using remote role assignment

    • Using remote delta link

For the UWL configuration in a federated portal, it is assumed that the consumer and producer portal have already been configured.
