2254894 - How to fetch multiple events of a compensation information from a compound employee API


Compound Employee API is unable to retrieve all compensation information records with same effective start. Only the record with the latest update is returned, if multiple records exist for the same time slice.

For below example, only highlighted record will get picked up by CompoundEmployee API.

  • For effective dated tables that have a sequence counter, only the record with the highest sequence counter will be returned, if multiple records exist for the same time slice (this affects the subsegments of job_information, compensation_information and paycompensation_recurring).
  • In above example, job information with sequence counter 2 will be returned by Compound EmployeeAPI.


  • Compound Employee API provides a SFAPI parameter "resultOptions" which can be used to pick all the job events with same effective start date.
  • Set SFAPI Parameter value as resultOptions=allCompensationChangesPerDay.
