User ID Encryption for Employee Central Pages

We have created an option for you to encrypt the user IDs in URLs for Employee Central pages.

If enabled, the following pages show the User ID encryption:
  • Global Assignment

  • Switching Profile/Searching for other user profiles

  • Concurrent Employment

  • Rehire

  • Rehire with New Employment

  • Internal Hire

  • Manage Pending Hires

  • New Hire creation from org chart

  • View Profile link from Hire Success page

We did this to improve the security of the software.

What's Changed

In the current version, you can encrypt the user ID from URLs for better software security. For example: https://ec.com/xi/ui/peopleprofile/pages/newhire.xhtml?selected_user_encoded=V4-Vfr2gTXrUSF8o_TEFDBbieRPdI5vFCkIEtHMlhN6yA&userType=REH_NEW_EMP

In the previous version, the option to encrypt the user ID did not exist and hence was visible in the URL. For example: https://ec.com/xi/ui/peopleprofile/pages/newhire.xhtml?selected_user_encoded=rollno104&userType=REH_NEW_EMP
