2615877 - Editable Ind Percent field not re-setting to default values after values being changed and forms being deleted and re-launched.


  • A customer has a field for example like Individual Percent in a Variable Pay Worksheet.
  • This field will appear with a default value of 7.00% when the form is launched.
  • However, the manager may change this value to 7.50% and save the form.
  • This form is deleted and a new form is launched.
  • Instead of the 7.00% default value appearing the adjusted 7.50% appears instead.


SAP SuccessFactors Compensation

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Navigate to Compensation and open a Variable Pay Worksheet configured to have the field Ind Percent included on the worksheet. 
  2.  Change the default value of the field Ind Percent for a sample of users on the worksheet and save the worksheet.
  3.  Delete the worksheet by navigating to the Variable Pay Template>Manage Worksheets>Manage Worksheets and delete the recently launched form.
  4.  Relaunch the worksheet from Manage Worksheets>Create Worksheets.
  5.  Check the worksheet and see that the manually updated percentages reappear instead of the guideline configured.


  • This is an expected behaviour.
  • No matter what the value is for forceDefaultOnRatingChange is in the XML template of the Variable Pay worksheet. 
  • This is because the Rating hasn't been changed here. So that flag won't take effect actually in this scenario.
  • Re-create worksheet won't revert Assignment Based Rating modified individual percent back to default value since the data is related to assignment not entry.
  • Bonus calculation won't either after reflector in a previous engineering fix.
  • Manually modified values will only be cleared on worksheets when users reimport employee history data and delete existing records.
