2330397 - Form is not created when the option 'Create for Head of Planning only' is not checked - Compensation Management


Compensation template is configured with the Planner Mode Hierarchy (Rollup Hierarchy).

When trying to launch a form for a manager without checking the option 'Create for Head of Planning only', the form is not created. Only if you check this option is that the form is created.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Setup the compensation template with method of planner as Rollup hierarchy
  2. Launch worksheets with any planner.
  3. Notice that the job completes successfully, but no worksheets are launched.


The manager being used as Head of Compensation Planning is not selected as a Compensation Planner under Define Planners page.



In order to fix this issue, you need to select the manager as Compensation Planner (not his/her direct reports) and save it.
