2078187 - Plan Setup - Eligibility Rules to Control Members on Plans - Variable Pay


How will you control form membership using <include-eligible-users-only> XML tag and COMPENSATION_ELIGIBLE flag in user data file?


SAP Successfactors Variable Pay


Inclusion to the VarPay manager form can be based on the COMPENSATION_ELIGIBLE flag in user data.

  • COMPENSATION_ELIGIBLE = TRUE (or blank): the member will be included in the form
  • COMPENSATION_ELIGIBLE = FALSE: the member will NOT be included in the form

In addition to that, if the Opt-In configuration XML flag <include-eligible-users-only> is set to TRUE, inclusion of a member to the VarPay manager form will be based to the member having at least one assignment in the VarPay program.
That mentioned Opt-In XML flag requires modification to the XML template. Please contact SuccessFactors Customer Success if you wish this to be applied.

If all users' COMPENSATION_ELIGIBLE flag is set to TRUE in the user data import file

  • AND Opt-In XML flag = “TRUE" AND member has an assignment then he/she will be included in the form  
  • AND Opt-In XML flag = “TRUE” AND member does NOT have an assignment then he/she will NOT be included in the form
  • AND Opt-In XML flag = “FALSE” the member will be included in the form regardless of whether they have an assignment or none


If all users' COMPENSATION_ELIGIBLE flag is set to FALSE in the user data import file.

Inclusion of the members in the form will be irrespective of the eligibility data, the Opt-In configuration and Employee History record. This allows the admin to exclude someone from a form even if the employee has assignments (a typical case would be someone joining a company after cut-off eligibility date and still might have an assignment for that short period.
