Reproducing the Issue

  1. Employee to apply for an internal position under a different Legal Entity:
    • Employee ID (person-id-external): PersonID1
    • Username: username1
    • User ID: userId1
  2. Initiate Future Termination for the Employee.
  3. Initiate Onboarding from Recruiting immediately a day after termination.
  4. Complete the Onboarding Process
    • Employee ID During NHDRPersonID1
    • Username: username1
    • User ID: userId2


For Legal Entity Transfer on New Employment:

  • We don't make any changes to the personIdExternal, as well as the Username. 
  • The username remains unchanged as the employee is still active
  • As for the User Id, a new one will be assigned since the onboardee is considered as a new user.
