2597714 - Action type in PA48 not defaulted


When using PA48 the Action type is not getting defaulted as you expect.


  • Human Capital Management (HCM)
  • SAP ERP Core Component
  • SAP enhancement package for SAP ERP
  • SAP enhancement package for SAP ERP, version for SAP HANA
  • SAP E-Recruiting 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Transaction PA48
  2. Select an Employee 
  3. Click Hire

On this screen the Action Type is not what you expect by default


The first hire Action Type listed in table T529A that has a '1' (numerical one) in the "Function Character" field is what will be defaulted as Action Type.


If you want a specific action to be the default, it must be configured as the first action in the list (T529A) with a '1' in the Function Character field.
Only one hire action can be set as the default.

You can select an action other than the one that is displayed by default, by pressing the F4 key or menu dropdown to pick the appropriate action if the one that is defaulted is not the one you want to use.
