In SAP system, it is possible to archive all the completed Workitems. You can also achieve all data in a workitem. You can display the achieved workitems but they can’t be loaded in SAP system. When you archive workitems, it includes archiving log data, workflow manager data, dependent workitems and workitem attachments.

To archive workitems, you have to navigate to Tools → Business Workflow or Development → Workflow → Administration → Workflow Runtime → Reorganization → Archive Work Item.
To archive the workitem, you can use the following selection criteria −
You can also delete workitems which are not archived. To delete workitems, navigate to Tools → Business Workflow or Development → Workflow and then Administration → Workflow Runtime → Reorganization → Archive Work Item or T-Code: SWWL.
With the selection criteria as shown below, you have an option to delete Workitems immediately/Delete log data as well. To delete Workitem, enter the required fields and click the Execute button at the top.
To display archived workitems, you have to use report “RSWWARCR”.
