2845364 - HRIS Sync: Work Permit Sync FAQ

Symptom

HRIS Sync for workPermitInfo element

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

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud
  • Employee Central
  • HRIS Sync 

Resolution

Work Permit Info has no pre-defined HRIS Sync Mappings configured, so any required sync mapping will need to be custom. The configuration of the HRIS sync mapping can be completed in either Manage Business Configuration (BCUI) or the Succession Data Model. The following are examples of how this can be configured:

  • Example of configuration in Manage Business Configuration (BCUI) - Select details of any workPermitInfo Element fields to access the HRIS Sync Mapping settings:

  • Example of configuration in Succession Data Model:

The following Work Permit Info fields allow HRIS sync mapping to standard fields:

EC Work Permit Source Field ID EP (standard-element) Destination Field ID
country Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
document-type Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
document-title Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
document-number Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
issue-date Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
issue-place Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
issuing-authority Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
expiration-date Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used
is-validated Any standard custom field (custom01 to custom15) or a custom User Info field can be used

Important: If the employee has multiple entries in Work Permit Info, only the last modified entry will synchronize across via HRIS Sync

Please Note: The Entity-type parameter will be automatically set in the data model as "workeligibility". This should not be set during the configuration as any value will revert to workeligibility.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q) Are there any hard-coded sync mappings for Work Permit Info?
A) No, workPermitInfo does not have any hard-coded sync mappings to worry about, all mappings are custom

Q) Can we identify a specific Document Type to be mapped, via the entity-type parameter?
A) No, the system will map source to destination field, regardless of document-type. For example, if document-number is mapped to a standard field, then that specific number will be sent regardless of document-type (i.e. Green Card & Work Permit).

Q) Can I set an HRIS Sync job to run only for the Work Permit entity?
A) No, it is not possible to schedule such a job specifically for the Work Permit element.
