not supported elements HRIS sync.png


The HRISelement id jobRelationsInfo is not supported by sync mapping.


Only 4 Job relationships types are hard coded sync'd to standard fields an shown in the below chart:

Job rel mapping hard coded.png

The sync logic will regard the external code for each known relationship type as fixed value. These external codes are from jobRelType Picklist.
The system will run the different sync logic (HR manager/matrix manager /custom managers/second manager) based on the external code.

These will be synd to standard fields hrId, secondManager, matrixManager, customManager.
