Is it possible to generate User ID via Business Rule for Contingent workers?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


  • Employee Central - Concurrent Employment
  • Employee Central - Global Assignment


SF now supports User ID generation via business rule for Concurrent Employment similar to New Hire, with Centralized Services enabled for Regular employment.

Currently Add assignment UI for Contingent worker does not support User ID generation via business rule as it is not supported by Centralized Services yet.

This is to streamline the User Id generation process.

The User ID is a unique number which is associated to each employment and can’t be changed. Its sole purpose is to be the system’s unique identifier for the persons employment and is mapped from the Person ID for EC customers.
