2437075 - How to hide Global Information Fields onInit in the Add New Employee Wizard


How can we hide some Global Informing fields, using an onInit Business Rule.

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


Employee Central - New Hire/Rehire Wizard

Reproducing the Issue

1. Create a business rule that hides certain fields from Glabal Information

2. Set the rule as Oninit under country specific Global Information element in Manage Business Configuration

3. Add New Employee, fields are not hidden when in Global Information section


This is currently not supported


The Business Rules Framework, does not currently support Hiding Global Information Fields using an onInit event type Business Rules.

If a rule is created to hide fields in Global Information, it can lead to the duplication of fields.


In order to fix this, simply remove the business rule created to hide the fields from Manage Business Configuration.

An enhancement request can be made to have this feature implemented in a future release.
