Using failed BDCs as triggers for workflow

Is there a way to tie a w/f task/step to this, so that when the BDC fails, the w/f is triggered and an work flow item is created in the user's workflow inbox?

We are on 3.1H. I have a workflow related question. There's a program which does a simple BDC to create condition...

records, this happens in background. Now is there a way to tie a w/f task/step to this, so that when the BDC fails, the w/f is triggered and an work flow item is created in the user's workflow inbox? This then the user can process to check the error?


I do believe that BDC's are the devil's tool! I find them so unreliable and very prone to upgrade issues. I know that they are quick to implement but they are just so high maintenance. OK, I feel better now!

You would need to manually kick off the Workflow after checking the Messages internal table which is returned from the Call Transaction. You can use Function Module SWW_WI_START_SIMPLE to kick off the Workflow.
