2776458 - Propagation XML Migration to Business Rules - Day 1 Considerations


As of the Q1 2019 release, the HRIS Propagation Configuration XML template is deprecated in your system. This KBA lists considerations to be taken into account once your instance has been migrated. Based on your configuration, some you may have rules created which you did not expect or may need to reorder rules.

This means that you can no longer use XML-based propagation rules in the Succession Data Model to have the system automatically fill in fields in employment data from foundation objects. From now on, business rules must be used for this purpose. Existing rules in XML will be translated into onChange business rules and automatically migrated for you.

Further information on this Migration can be found in the below repositories:
