2485548 - EC PersonId not used When Hiring From Onboarding


When we hire a new employee via Onboarding and sync with EC, the system does not create a new personnel number for the candidate.

The normally autogenerated Employee Id is now replaced with a long string.

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