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
