3020220 - Is it possible to create reports for External Time Data?

Symptom

Is it possible to create reports for External Time Data using Table reports or Story reports or Advanced Reports?

Environment

SAP Successfactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

To check the External Time Data, please follow the steps:

  1. Go to Manage Data
  2. Search for External Time Data
  3. Select one data

Resolution

Up to now, “External time data” was not yet enabled for reporting (neither Advanced Reporting nor Stories) as it is only a staging area and all the information should also be visible in the time sheet or in employee time.

As a workaround, please use the Integration Center tool to get data from this MDF object:

  1. Access Integration Center
  2. My integrations
  3. Click on "+ Create"
  4. Scheduled Simple File Output Integration
  5. Search for "externalTimeData"
  6. Select the needed fields and click on "Select"
