2294141 - Limitation for manage attachments during workflow execution


Approvers are unable to edit attachment in workflow and therefore cannot upload an attachment to it.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

Workflow approver cannot edit the attachment section of a workflow that is pending approval.

Only workflow initiator can edit and upload an attachment to it.


As per the current product design, there are some limitations with regards to managing attachments during workflow execution.


This feature is supported only for following workflow types (because they have Job Information change, which has attachment field):

  1. Job Information change workflow
  2. New hire/rehire/internal hire workflow
  3. Termination workflow
  4. Global Assignment workflow
