Shopping Cart Approvers ( Agents ) and Participants

Tags: SRM

Use the following snippet to determine the workflow agents / approvers of an SRM Shopping Cart.

  DATA:
    ls_wf_hist TYPE /sapsrm/s_wf_process,
    lt_partner TYPE bbp_pdt_partner.

    /sapsrm/cl_wf_apv_facade=>retrieve_process_history(
      EXPORTING
        iv_document_guid = lv_shopping_cart_guid
        iv_agent_id = space
        iv_language = space
     IMPORTING
       es_process = ls_wf_process
    ).

You can extract the agents for each step from the deep structure ls_wf_hist.
Hint: You find the shopping cart guid in table CRMD_ORDERADM_H in component GUID. You can select from this table with the given Shopping Cart Number which is stored in component OBJECT_ID.

To get the Requester of a Shopping Cart, you need to get the parners participating in the lifecycle of the Shopping Cart.

    CALL FUNCTION 'BBP_PD_SC_GETDETAIL'
      EXPORTING
        i_guid    = lv_shopping_cart_guid
      TABLES
        e_partner = lt_partner.

After retrieving lt_partner, you need to read the entry whit the right Partner Function ( component PARTNER_FCT).  Which partner function is the Requester? Just search in the Implementation Guide for Partnetr Functions, and you'll find the corresponding customizing  easily.
You'll find the requesters business partner guid in the line selected in component PARTNER_NO.

More information about the user agent (like the user name) using the partner guid can be gathered using the following function call:

      CALL FUNCTION 'BP_CENTRALPERSON_GET'
        EXPORTING
          iv_bu_partner_guid  = CONV bu_partner_guid( lv_partner_guid )
        IMPORTING
          ev_username         = lv_username
        EXCEPTIONS
          no_central_person   = 1
          no_business_partner = 2
          no_id               = 3
          OTHERS              = 4.

CONV bu_partner_guid( lv_partner_guid ). This statement not available in older releases. Instead of CONV move  the value in field PARTNER_FCT to a variable expected by the function first, and pass it, that's it.
