Changing the deadline attributes of a work item
The function module SWW_WI_DEADLINES_CHANGE changes the attributes of the deadline monitoring for a particular work item. The important attributes for this function module are work item ID (WI_ID) and the table DEADLINE_ATTRIBUTES. In the table, we pass the deadline data that needs to be changed. The following conditions apply when the attributes are changed:
A deadline is cancelled if:
- The action attribute had the value SPACE
- The date attribute has the value '00000000'
- The time attribute has the value '000000'
The escalation time is only changed if it has a value other than 0. But the escalation time is only evaluated for the latest end (currently not at all).
Since the default value for the time (00:00:00) is also a valid time value, this time cannot be set. (00:00:01) must be entered.
