Does EC support triggering workflow on import

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


Successfactors - Employee Central


All workflows are triggered when data is imported in Incremental Load mode only.

  • The record being imported results in an insert of a new time slice in job history and not correction of an existing record.
  • The reason being incremental inserts are considered as effective changes in Job History while incremental updates are considered as job corrections.

Note: EC does not support the triggering of workflows during Full Purge import mode.
