3274812 - Access for all calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API

Symptom

How does the newly added "Access for all calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API" permission work.?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Integrations

Cause

The "Access for all calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API" permission will be available in all instances from the 2H 2022 Release, under the Employee Data Permission Section of Permission Roles. 

This permission controls access to calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API such as Pay Component Groups. 

Resolution

If the "Access for all calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API" setting is set to View, then there are no permission checks for pay component group sums during the OData API request call.

This is the same behaviour that was seen prior to 2H 2022 Release, to ensure there is no change in behaviour or additional tasks needed after the 2H 2022 Release, any permission role which has the permission "Employee Central HRIS OData API (read-only)" under the permission section Employee Central API, will be updated to include this new permission: "Access for all calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API"

If you wish for permissions to be checked for all calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API , then this permission must but unchecked (not provided) to the api owner in any of their permission roles. Please note that this may lead to performance issues during large oData requests.

Note: 

  • The "Edit" permission has no functional impact on this permission and therefore is not required. 
  • "View" = No permission checks occur for calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API request call. This is the same behaviour as seen prior to the 2H 2022 Release. 
  • No Permission Provided (neither View nor Edit =  permission checks occurs for calculated fields of Compensation information with OData API request call. This new functionality is now achievable from the 2H 2022 Release.
