The business rules configured have an incorrect Rule Type defined.

In our example, the Rule Type selected is ECRule.




Compensation requires that the business rules to be used in the module need to have the Rule Type "compensationEligibility".

Variable Pay requires that the business rules to be used in the module need to have the Rule Type "varpayEligibility". This applies not just to Manager-level eligibility, but also other eligibililtes, such as bonus plan EC Eligibility Rule:


The same applies to Spot Awards. There should be a "spotAwardsEligibility" defined in the Rule Type.

If this value "compensationEligibility"is not defined in your RuleType picklist, you will need to add it in Admin Center > Configure Object Definition > PickList > RuleType.


Then if you create a new rule in Admin Center > Configure Business Rules > Create New Rule > Basic > Adding all details including Rule Type "compensationEligibility" or "varpayEligibility"...


and go back to the compensation templates, when you go to Eligibility page, now the new rule will be displayed.


You will need to re-create the business rules to contain the correct Rule Type.

NOTE: Business Rules for Compensation Eligibility can only be related to jobInfo, compInfo, personalInfo or employmentInfo as Base Objects.
