If a workflow has been transported from a Q system it is intended behavior to have the scenario locked in P system. 
Once a workflow scenario has been transported to Production system using the Import Collection app from source system (Q-system) the workflow Scenario is locked and can no longer be modified. SAP recommend to have one leading source system.


To edit workflows, follow the steps below: 

  1. Use "Manage Workflows for..." Apps in your Q-System (Source) for any required changes 
  2. Transport the changes via "Export Software Collections" App in Q-System
  3. Import changes via "Import Software Collections" App in P-System 

Users assigned to workflows should exist in both Q and P systems with the same business partner identification, see Note 2813272
