SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: Dependents Management

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to any Employee Profile having dependents data


  • Now, edit one dependent via Edit -> Edit details


  • With a new time slice Sept 1st, and click Edit details


  • After updating details, click Save


  • After workflow is approved, check Dependents Portlet


  • Now, verify data in relationship table; a new time slice is setup only for the modified dependent
  • Now, import the relationship data to insert a new time slice with incremental load for all the dependents
  • Now, verify data in relationship table
  • For the dependent whose data got modified through user interface, a duplicate record is inserted



It is a known issue.


The work around (to create a new time slice for all the existing dependents) for this issue is to make changes to Dependents Portlet via below steps:

  • Edit dependent in quick edit page


  • With a new time slice of expected date eg. Sept 1st, edit any field (example: middle name) in the quick edit page and Save        



  • Now we can edit Dependent specific details as a new time slice is created for all existing dependents


  • With the same time slice eg. Sept 1st, click edit details for the target dependents


  • Edit detail and Save
