Introduction to SAP Cloud Platform Workflow Q&A

Version 1

    Link to replay is here

     

    Does the service also available on RAD by mendix?

     

    yes and no; Mendix can use SCP Workflow service

     

     

     

    Hi - I have a few questions. First one - Can we send attachments with the email task? If not, will this be available in the future?

     

    Don't know ; on the list; use a service task instead

     

     

     

    Can we use a custom app, rather than My Inbox with the workflow?

     

    2 answers - depends on custom app; you have workflow API - yes and yes

     

     

     

    Hi DJ, great demo. I have a question. Is there a SAP recommendation about when to use SAP Cloud Platforn Workflow in preference to traditional SAP Workflow?

     

     

    can you share the link to yesterday webcast?

     

    Please see this blog for a link to replay of yesterday's webcast (and last week's S/4HANA Workflow) https://blogs.sap.com/2018/04/01/save-the-date-your-guide-to-every-upcoming-workflow-2018-webcast/

     

     

     

    Will workflow in cloud work with Mobile Services smoothly or need some sort of extra integration or coding?

     

    depends; workflow API available to anywhere

     

     

     

    Hi Dj great demo. Does workflow provide flexible methods like rules/ org hierarchy to determine approvers like in gui one?

     

    no, no is right but use the business rules services

     

     

     

    How do you handle Outcomes and also, what kind of options we have for Agent determination? Can I try to call a Service and get the list of Agents for Agent Determination?

     

    yes, not sure about outcomes

     

     

     

    Another question - Is it advised that we do not store sensitive information in the workflow data? e.g. updating bank information for a Vendor change scenario with workflow

     

    GDPR - not sure...will think and reach DJ on twitter @qmacro

     

     

     

    thanks for the demo. I'm very new to SAPUI5 and SCP workflow. what will be the starting point for me to start learning the SCP workflow. I should start SAPUI5 first or directly SCP workflow

     

    Hi - thank you for attending; he has several links in his slides to getting started - here is a link to his slides https://discuss.asug.com/docs/DOC-49160

     

     

     

    What kind of authorization/role will be needed to access the log API?

     

    I think he is covering this now

     

     

     

    Can we show the context of JSON data each step inside the workflow monitor?

     

    yes

     

     

     

    Do we have any option to re-start the failed workflow like in ECC?

     

    yes

     

     

     

    How do we transport the workflow and its relevant objects?

     

    maybe re-ask this in the SAP Community - assuming between server accounts on SCP - manually - export/import, push deploy
