3217150 - Employee replication excludes the "Gender code".


Employee Gender code is not replicated to cloud system from the source system.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Business partner application.
  2. Select the role for the partner.
  3. Check the gender related information.


Gender is personal, sensitive data belonging to an employee. Since SAP S/4HANA Cloud doesn’t include a process that needs this information, it isn’t replicated.


There are different source systems from which you can replicate the data to an SAP S/4HANA Cloud system. This is why the gender information from any of the source systems (SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, Import Employees, SOAP API: Replicate Basic Master Data for Workforce from External HR Systems) is not replicated to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
