FAQ & Troubleshooting Org Chart Common Issues:

  1. Changes have not taken effect in Org chart
    When any change is made to the Org Chart, a job is triggered to update the Hierarchy, so please allow up to 30 minutes for this job to execute. The job can be viewed in Provisioning directly (it is called “Generate LnR” within Monitor Jobs) by SAP Support and/or SAP Partners.
