2444267 - Application error when adding a Contingent Worker


When you try to add a contingent worker, you can fill all the data on the sections below:

  • Identity information;
  • Personal Information;
  • Contingent Worker Assignment Information;

But when you finish the section Contingent Worker Assignment Information and click on continue you get an application error and the section Work Order Information is not loaded.

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