Steps to transport the Agent assignment from one system to another
There are 3 types of Agents used in workflows, all are used in conjunction to find the selected agents for a work item. Possible Agents are assigned to the task; this is the pool of agents that will be considered later to become an agent of the work item. Responsible Agents are the agents that are returned from workflow agent definition or the default role of the task. A Responsible agent can only process a work item if they are a possible agent and if they are not an excluded agent. Excluded agents are defined at the workflow level.
Maintaining Agent Assignment. Each single-step task must be assigned to its possible agents. Possible agents are not assigned to a standard task supplied by SAP. They are generally assigned in Customizing. You can, of course, change and extend these assignments at a later date as well.
