2383840 - Compensation Information is Not Publishing to Employee Central


When publishing Compensation data from completed forms into Employee Central (EC), nothing is being updated within employee profiles

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Compensation
  • SAP SuccessFactors Variable Pay
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central


  • This is due to EC rules being triggered to the new information published from Compensation
  • Therefore, EC is blocking your publishing of new data


  • To avoid triggering EC rules there is an option within the template which can be enabled
  • This setting, Do not trigger EC rules when publishing from Compensation to Employee Central, can can be found under Plan Setup > Settings > Advanced Settings

  • Once this option is enabled, EC rules will not be triggered and your publishing of data will update within employee profiles correctly
  • This option is a dynamic option and can be enabled/disabled whenever required
