2551681 - Display of Parent Child Relations in the same object in Company Structure Overview


When there is a parent child relation with the same object, for example Parent Department. The child is shown below the parent but also on the same line as the parent in Company Structure Overview.


Employee Central - Company Structure Overview

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Define an association between two objects for example Business Unit (Parent) and Department (Child).
  2. On the Department object have a Parent Department Defined.
  3. Define a Company Structure Overview which contains the association between the two objects (Business Unit and Department) and the two Department relations (Parent Department and Child Department).
  4. Navigate to Company Structure Overview.
  5. See the Child Department is shown below the Parent Department, but is also shown on the same line as the Parent Department below the division.


This is expected behaviour.


The department not only has an association to the parent department but also to the business unit.
Since you have added both association to the company structure overview definition the department will correctly show under both the parent department and the business unit.
