    1. Go to Admin Center > Compensation > Actions for All Plans

  8. When you export the Data model you see only the following associated with personalCompensationStatement.

    <element-permission type="read">
        <description>The roles that may read compensation</description>
        <standard-element-ref refid="personalCompensationStatement"/>


 This issue may occur when the customer has had Role based permission enabled recently and there is missing required configuration on the data model.


  1.  Download the Data model from Provisioning. (NOTE: Provisioning access is usually restricted to Product Support, Professional Services consultants, and impementation partners. Please contact the appropriate resource to perform the import/export of the data model)
  2.  Add the declaration for personalCompensationStatement as written below:

    <standard-element id="personalCompensationStatement" max-length="255" required="false" matrix-filter="false">
        <label>Personal Compensation Statement</label>
        <label xml:lang="en-US">Compensation Statement</label>

    NOTE: if the customer's issue is with a Variable Pay statement, the standard-element id should be "personalVarPayStatement".
    For combined statements, it's "personalCombinedStatement"
  3. Upload the datat model to the instance
  4. Go back to Admin Center > Set User Permissions > Manage Permission Roles > User Permissions > Employee Data, and Compensation Statement should now be visible.
  5. Put a check on the appropriate permission.
  6. Go to Employee Views
  7. Make sure there is a check on the Compensation Statements view
