  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to system
  2. Navigate to Admin Center > Compensation > Compensation Home
  3. Select a variable pay template
  4. Select Plan Setup > Settings > Set Bonus Calculation
  5. Under the Basis Calculation Equation section, select Salary/Earnings and bonus target % derived from job info > Select Get the earnings from the earnings data table > Select Import Eligible Earnings Data > Select file > Upload
  6. Select Manage Users > Import Employee History From Employee Central > Select the Process button
  7. Select Manage Users > Edit Employee History > Search for a user
  8. The Basis column is not calculating correctly


This behavior occurs in specific configuration scenarios with the following criteria:

This is tentatively scheduled to be fixed in the 2311 release. Release dates can be reviewed on Product Release & Road Map Information.
