2866807 - Compensation & Variable Pay - makeCustomDataReportable b2005 retirement


The legacy feature tag makeCustomDataReportable is will be retired within the b2005 release.

  • This option will be set to "false" during the merging.
  • This is a legacy feature flag which when marked as true, will make all custom fields in the plan reportable. For example, custom spreadsheet reports and others.
  • The flag being marked as "true" has a consequence of having a lot of records in the data-base, which in turn impacts performance. This will be retired in the future.
  • For Total Compensation, we check to see if the flag is set and update this to false. This is noted in 2823817 - Compensation & Variable Pay - Total Compensation template validations

This does not impact custom columns which are already marked as being reportable in ADHOC, executive review etc from within your templates.

Setting the tag to be "false" will only impact the following reports as well as any reports created by the SAP custom reporting team.

  • RDF Reporting
  • Custom Spreadsheet

This is due to these types of reports using the COMP_EXT table.

This table is at database level and can not be accessed via the UI.

Should you have templates which have this tag enabled, the following will appear when saving in design worksheet.

Moving forward, we recommend customers start Utilizing ADHOC reporting or the newly embedded Analytics functionality.

For any new templates being created or cloned, this will be set to "false".
