Configurable Root Cause Analysis with Analytics Designer

We enhanced the root cause analysis for alerts in Payroll Control Center by introducing a new object type "analytics designer" in Manage Configuration.

Using the analytics designer, you can configure the following layouts for the root cause analysis for alerts in Manage Configuration:
  • Program output

  • Table with row templates

  • Label-value pairs

You need to assign the analytics designer to validation rules, which are in turn assigned to a payroll process. As a result, payroll administrators and payroll process managers can drill down to the root cause of an alert displayed on the Alert Details page in My Alerts and the Monitoring step in My Processes.

We’re continuing to enhance Payroll Control Center to simplify the configuration of validation rules for our partners and to help business users complete their payroll activities more easily under changing business needs.

Configuration Requirements

For Employee Central Payroll, Support Package EA-HR SPA6 must be installed in your system.

Please note that, while the Employee Central side of this feature is available, you can't use the feature as a whole until the production release. Note also that the full documentation won't be available until then either.
