2618070 - Variable Pay: Support Background Element configuration using BCUI (Manage Business Configuration)


When previously using employee history from employee central for Variable Pay the background element was maintained through the Succession data-model.

It is now possible to create and maintain background elements which are defined in your data-model through the UI.

This enhancement from employee central will allow feature parity between the Succession data-model and Business Configuration Manager.


  • Variable Pay Employee History
  • Manage Business Configuration


To access background elements within the UI please follow the below steps.

    1. From Admin Center go to Company Settings> Manage Business Configuration.

    2. Expand the tab labelled "Employee Profile" and select "Background Elements".
