3227872 - Can Photo data be extracted via Compound Employee?

Symptom

You would like to know if it is currently possible to extract Photo data from the Photo entity via CompoundEmployee API?

Or if not, it will be made possible in future?

  

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • CompoundEmployee API

  

Resolution

Currently it is not possible to extract / retrieve Photo data via the CompoundEmployee API.

 

Additionally, this topic has been fully evaluated with the CompoundEmployee development team:

  • Photo entity is not directly linked to payroll-relevant information (which is the main purpose of CompoundEmployee API)
       
  • Photo data also is very "heavy" in terms of payload & unlikely that it will change frequently. 

 

Photo will NOT be considered as an enhancement to CompoundEmployee API for future releases.
