Handling of Status-Changing Events Replicated from Employee Central

You can now overrule the default behavior of your on-premise SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system in cases where the replication of event reasons from Employee Central leads to errors in the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system.

You can configure the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system to ignore a replicated event reason that changes the employment status of an employee under the following condition: The mapped action type has a feature assigned in Customizing and this feature would raise an error. You can also specify how the system is to react in the following case: The replication of event reasons results in two status-changing action types that are logged with the same start date for the same employee. By default, the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system can only store one status-changing action for an employee on a specific day. You can overrule this default behavior by defining how the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system is to react to each sequence of two status-changing event reasons that are replicated from Employee Central.

Overruling the default system behavior for data replication from Employee Central prevents that the processing in the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system is aborted.

Configuration Requirements

Support package 29 of the integration add-on for ERP and SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (SFSF EC INTEGRATION 1210) must be installed in your SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system.

Before and After

Previously, the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system aborted the processing and raised errors in the following situations:

  • You assigned features to action types such as Termination and the features enforce a specific source and target employment status for the action type. An event reason is replicated from Employee Central that's mapped to such an action type and doesn't comply with the feature settings.

  • Replication of event reasons from Employee Central leads to more than one status-changing action to be logged with the same start date for the same employee.

Now, you can overrule the default system behavior to ensure that employees replicated from Employee Central are processed in the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system.
