Managing Pay Component Groups – This article covers where to manage Pay Component Groups and how to control their visibility in the Compensation Information portlet.

Scenario: We would like to setup some more custom Pay Component Groups and also permission so that only certain users can see them, how do we do it ourselves?


  • Compensation


Pay Component Groups can be managed and created via Admin Tools > Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures. You would use a Pay Component Group to link Pay Components together to display their totals on the Compensation Information portlet in Employee Central.

  • Linking a Pay Component to a Pay Component Group is simple as long as the Pay Component Group is configured correctly. You just need to find the Pay Component Group you wish to edit and add Pay Components to it
  • Then the Pay Component Groups are displayed on the Compensation Information page. Clicking on the blue ? button next to the Pay Component Group will open a pop-up table showing all the Pay Components assigned to the employee that are associated with that Pay Component Group and their Amounts used in that calculation
  • The Pay Component Groups visibility in the Compensation Information section are controlled by Role-Based Permissions. The Pay Component Groups are found when granting Permissions to the Permission Role, under User Permissions > Employee Data > Pay Component Groups (see attached image).
  • Please note that a Pay Component Group will also not show in Compensation Information for an employee if that employees does not have any of the Pay Components associated with that Pay Component Group set in their Compensation Information record.
