Reproducing the Issue

  1. Try to set the visibility of the field on the Time Account payout object
  2. In Configure Object Definition -> Time Account payout object > this field is not listed.


This field gives information about the standard rate or custom rate.

The visibility of this field is controlled by Pay component configurations defined in the time account type, not on the Time Account Payout Object.




  • If the Pay component assigned has Pay component Type set to "Amount", the field will be visible.Total payout will be calculated in the Time side only and then will be replicated;
  • If Pay component type is set to "Number", field will not be visible.Total payout will not be calculated in the Time side only and total payout will be calculated on payroll end;

Note: In case you are not able to see the  Pay component type is set "Number" then please perform the step below:

  1. Add  following hris field in the Corporate Data Model  if you are not seeing the  option for Number in the Pay Component Type drop down.Reach out to your implementation partner or raise a support ticket to add below  XML code in corporate data model
    1. Add below field under section -- <hris-element id="payComponent">


 <hris-field id="unit-of-measure" visibility="both" pii="false">

   <label>Unit of Measure</label>


<hris-field id="rate" visibility="both" pii="false">



<hris-field id="number" visibility="edit" pii="false">
