3050056 - Behavior of To Do Alerts when four-eye principle enabled.


Admin not received To Do alert even though he/she is one of the participant based on workflow configuration.


SAP SuccessFactors Employeecentral - Alerts and Notification.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enable "
  2. Keep EC Alerts and Notification provisioning job owner as one of the Alert recipient.
  3. Trigger Alert and observe that job owner do not receive To Do Alert. If this user added as CC role then he/she will receive the email.


Expected behavior as per current design, the four-eye principle applies to the owner of the EC Alerts and Notifications job. If the job owner is also the resolved alert recipient, he or she will not receive the To Do alert.


We recommend to select admin user as job owner who is not part of business process.
