What's New

More Flexibility in Handling of Infotype Splits

You can now specify how the Organizational Assignment infotype in your on-premise SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system reacts when data replication from Employee Central inserts an infotype split in the Actions infotype for an employee.

The replication of events from SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central results in personnel actions being stored in the Actions (0000) infotype in the SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system. Whether the replication leads to a split in the Actions infotype depends on the mapping in SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP: When the Employee Central event reason is mapped to an SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP action type, a split is inserted in the Actions infotype. When the Employee Central event reason isn't mapped, no split is inserted. You can now specify how the Organizational Assignment (0001) infotype reacts when the replication inserts an infotype split in the Actions infotype for an employee.

Use this feature to align the system behavior in SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP with the handling of time slices in Employee Central Job Information.

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, only splits set for employment status-changing actions in the Actions infotype resulted in a corresponding split in the Organizational Assignment infotype.

Now, you can choose among the following options:

  • You can retain the default behavior, so that your SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system reacts the same way as it did before.

  • You can define that all infotype splits that are set in the Actions infotype are to result in a corresponding split in the Organizational Assignment infotype.

  • You can define that no infotype split that is set in the Actions infotype is to result in a split in the Organizational Assignment infotype.

Regardless of your choice, infotype splits in the Organizational Assignment infotype are always created if organizational data is changed for the employee.
