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 HXM Suite

Cause

The field allows you to set a Threshold number, which when reached will create a scheduled job to carry out the Hierarchy Adaption.

Resolution

  • For this feature to be used, the position hierarchy needs to be the leading hierarchy.
  • Once the number of incumbents of either child positions or matrix positions hits this number, the updates to the hierarchy or job relation will be carried out as a scheduled job.
  • If the number falls below the number, then the update will happen immediately.
  • Please note that if the number is 0, then it will never be triggered as a job.
  • We recommend to set a value between 5 and 20.

Please Note:
The scheduled job that is triggered is the Job Information Import Follow Up Processing . 
If a user makes a change in the UI which triggers the job based on the threshold, they will receive the notification of completion associated to this job. 
Please see the following KBA for further detail on this notification:
