Symptom

What is the logic behind how recurring pay components are ordered in the UI?

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

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Resolution

Please note that with Centralized services enabled, the ordering or Pay Components is not guaranteed. This is a known issue and planned to be fixed in ECT-201547.

When Pay Components are entered manually in UI.

For this scenario, the pay components will take the sequence in which they were entered manually in UI.

Example : If P1 is added first, followed by P2 and then P3 the sequence will be P1,P2,P3

When we import pay components in Full Purge.

For this scenario, pay components will take the sequence of the creation date.

Example :

Pay Component

Creation Date

Sequence in UI

P1

1/1/2000 13:37

P4

P2

1/1/2000 13:27

P3

P3

1/1/2000 13:17

P2

P4

1/1/2000 13:07

P1

When we import pay components in Incremental Load.


Case 1
– When import file has more pay components than that in UI.

In this case, the pay components already in UI will be as it is in the sequence, the new pay components which are added will start below the pay components which are already there in UI and the new pay components sequence will be as per the creation date.

Example:

Pay Components in UI

Pay Components in Import file

Creation Date

Sequence in UI

P2

P1

1/1/2000 13:37

P2

P4

P2

1/1/2000 13:27

P4

P6

P3

1/1/2000 13:17

P6

P4

1/1/2000 13:07

P5

P5

1/1/2000 13:06

P3

P6

1/1/2000 13:05

P1

Case 2: When import file has same pay components as the UI

In this case, the sequence will be same as per the UI irrespective of creation date of pay components and the sequence in import file.
