SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Sales Orders view.
  3. You notice that in the OWL (Object Work List) for some Sales Orders the Created by field does not display any user.


The respective sales orders were created by a technical user e.g. via an interface from a third party system. Due to technical and performance related reasons it is not possible to display technical users in the Created by field in the sales orders OWL.


This is a system limitation.
