About this Guide

This guide describes the aspects of the Universal Worklist component that are relevant to security.

As a component of SAP NetWeaver, Universal Worklist is based on the Portal Platform. The J2EE engine of the SAP Web Application Server forms the technical basis. The table below contains links to the security guides for these components.
