2698041 - Workflow Activity Log showing incomplete results in advanced reporting - Analytics


When running the standard report "Workflow Changes Activity Log" the "Activity log" column shows incomplete values.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

  • Online Report Designer
  • Advanced Reporting

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access the report;
  2. Check the column Activity log;
  3. You will see that, for some values, the "On behalf" or the Action type is not followed by a Username or User ID.


For most of the cases this is an expected behavior, and there is a way to validate the column's results based on its calculation.


The "Activity Log" column is a calculated column, as we can see below, it is defined upon some values which you can check by defining some additional columns to your report, check the image below for what columns to define:
