2250750 - Compensation Management and Variable Pay: Interoperability feature is not working.


Unable to access the comp form from the variable pay form, but works the other way around   

When you access the Comp form, you can see the link to the variable pay form which takes to the variable pay form.

In VRP form you can see a link to the comp worksheet to return if required.

But if you directly access the variable pay worksheet, then there's no link that shows up to be routed to the comp worksheet.

Compensation Management and Variable Pay

Reproducing the Issue

  1. The compensation and the variable pay form have been created

  2. Clicking on the Compensation form have a link that allows us to go to the VRP form 

    When you click on the Bonus tab, it opens up the variable pay form
  3. When you click on the Achievement tab, you get taken back to the Compensation form

  4. The problem happens when you directly click on VRP form
    There is no link available to take to the Compensation form

This is because you have created VRP forms first then CMP forms


If so, then this is the expected behavior.

Only when the counterpart form (1) already existed before you create an inter-op form (2), then form 2 will show a link to form 1. As when form 1 was created, there's no form 2 exist, so we cannot see the links.

If you open form 2 first, click the link to form 1, then in form 1 page, you will see the form 2 link. But this won't work if you directly open form 1.
