What is WRICEF in SAP?

Hello, in this blog, let’s look at the WRICEF concept in SAP.

WRICEF is an acronym for Workflow, Reports, Interfaces, Conversions, Enhancements, and Forms in SAP. It is used to refer to the various components and objects that are involved in customizing and extending the functionality of SAP systems.

WRICEF includes the following components and objects:


Workflow in SAP refers to automating and managing the flow of business tasks and activities within an organization. This might include routing tasks to the appropriate users, tracking the progress of tasks, and sending notifications to stakeholders.

Let’s take this simple workflow as an example where an employee requests leave.

  • Employee requests for leave the request goes to his/her manager for approval
  • The manager approves the request
  • A notification is sent to the employee and the leave data is updated in the SAP system
  • Or the Manager might reject the leave request
  • In this case, the employee is notified and provided with an option to re-submit the request or cancel it.


Reports in SAP are used to present data and information in a structured and organized manner. This might include creating list reports, form reports, and interactive reports, and using various formatting and layout options to present the data concisely.

Some examples of different types of reports are

  • List purchase requisitions
  • PO by material
  • Display material
  • Display serial number for materials


Interfaces in SAP are used to connect SAP systems to other SAP and non-SAP systems, allowing data and information to be exchanged between them. This might include creating interfaces using various technologies and protocols, such as BAPIs, IDocs, RFCs, REST, SOAP, etc and configuring them to meet the specific needs of the organization.


Conversions in SAP are used to migrate data and configuration settings from one SAP system to another. This might include extracting data from the source system, transforming it to meet the requirements of the target system, and loading it into the target system. Tools like SAP Data Services and SLT can be used for this purpose.


Enhancements in SAP are used to modify or extend the functionality of SAP systems without changing the underlying SAP code. This might include creating user exits, customer exits, and BADIs, and using them to add custom functionality to SAP systems. They are also called custom codes or Z transactions.


Forms in SAP are used to create and manage the layout and design of documents, such as invoices, purchase orders, and delivery notes. This might include creating form templates, using various layouts, and formatting options, and integrating the forms with other SAP components and objects.
