3222309 - Default deduction start date when creating a purchase leave


When creating a purchase leave, the deduction start date field in the UI should be defaulted with a specific date. An onInit rule is configured for the same in the object Time Account Purchase.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central : Time Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In configure object definition -> time account purchase object, create and assign a rule to set deduction start date to any date
  2. The rule should be assigned as an oninit (Initialize rule)
  3. The rule does not trigger when an employee tries to create a new purchase leave


  • Currently this feature is not supported in the purchase leave UI
  • OnInit rule cannot be used to set the deduction start date field value
