Is it possible to default "Is Primary" field without business rule and/or mapping in PP3?

  • SAP Successfactors Employee Central - Hire

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to any New Hire Wizard / Personal Information portlet.
  2. Fill up necessary fields
  3. Notice that the "Is Primary" field is not defaulted to "Yes"


Expected behavior in PP3


Defaulting the "Is Primary" field to "Yes" was supported in v12 but not in PP3.

As of the moment, there is no plan of reverting back the behavior to PP3 because the UI is different from v12.

To default the "Is Primary" field, the customer can either create an onInit business rule or mapping from ONB/RCM to EC.
