2583121 - Workflow for Supervisor changes in Position Org Chart is not working - Employee Central


  •  Customer created a business rules that is intended to be trigger when the higher level of any position is changed in "Position Org chart". Once the change is saved, no workflow is triggered and the system creates a new record in Job Information


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - All Versions


  • Job information workflows are never triggered if the supervisor is changed by parent position change in "Position org chart"


  • This is working by design, the possible workaround is to create a rule in the position MDF object but the rule will trigger always even if this is not a supervisor change. The rules for MDF objects does not have the option to compare to the previous value.
