SAP Business Workflow - Import/Export

You can also import and export workflows using XML files. Meta-language BPM0.4 is used to describe the structure of workflows. When you export a workflow, following components of the workflow can’t be exported along with BPML 0.4 (BPML stands for Business Process Modeling Language).

  • Triggering events

  • Tasks in steps

  • Wait steps

  • Event creators

  • Task ID exported as SAP-specific extension

  • In case your workflow contains such step types, during import they are replaced by empty steps

  • Complex conditions

  • Data types such as structures, object type references

  • Modeled deadline monitoring

  • Activities with more than one outcome

  • Organization management rules/elements served as responsible agents
