2413277 - How Does the Concurrent Employment UserID Get Created? - EC


When creating a new Concurrent Employment for an employee, the Concurrent Employment UserID created is a new UserID

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

Reproducing the Issue

For userId 12345 we create a Concurrent Employment, but the UserId created is 43251. We were expecting it to create UserId as 12345-1


This is expected behaviour.


Create User Via Add concurrent employement

For Concurrent Employment, the UserID assigned is the next available UserID, BUT, the Username will be set similar to a Global Assignment. For example:

 Employment UserID PersonID Username
1 12345 12345 12345
2 43251 12345 12345-1
3 43252 12345 12345-2

Create User Via Add concurrent employement:Guide: Importing Concurrent Employments for Employees

  • You must use the person-id-external of the existing user to whom you want to assign the concurrent employment.
  • However, in the UserID column, enter a NEW UserID (one that does not already exist in the system - and note - you do not need to create it in advance in the Basic Import).
  • In effect, you are specifying a new UserID, which is similar to the set-up for global assignments.
