2345224 - Configuring Route Maps for Recruiting - Recruiting Management


  • In the Recruiting Management module Route Maps are used to define the approval path of a new requisition.
  • The user who creates the requisition completes initial data, and then sends the requisition to the user who owns the next step (defined in Route Map).
  • That user reviews the requisition, may add or adjust requisition data, then sends the requisition to the user who owns the next step.

Note: Route maps are a Platform feature. Not all route map functionality applies to Recruiting.

In order to define the workflow for approving the job requisition, please do the following:

  • Create a Route Map
    1. Go to Admin Center > Recruiting > Manage Route Maps
    2. Click on 'Add New Route Map' > 'Create your own', as the library are not available for Recruiting
    3. Provide a name to this route map
    4. Add as many Modify steps as are needed to facilitate the routing process
    5. Fill out the appropriate fields in the steps
  • Fill out the appropriate data in the steps: You can check the fields you can fill on the Implementation Guide. (If you don't have access to any of the guides or tools required to proceed with this implementation, reach out to an implementation partner team).
  • Associate a route map to a job requisition template: Having saved changes, you should associate the route map with the job requisition template in Admin Center > Form Templates. In the Route Map field, select the appropriate route map.


  • Signature steps are not formally supported in Recruiting Management. This means even if they seem to function, they should not be used.
  • Route maps should ideally start with the Originator to create a better flow.
  • If you want to enabled Use relative dates for form routing, please work with a partner or SAP Professional Services to receive guidance on how to use it.
  • The dates fields are for usability of other modules.
  • Since route map isn't an exclusive Recruiting feature, the dates are not supported for Recruiting Module.
  • Every change you made to a route map, the requisitions that were already opened using that route map will not get affected.
  • The modification made to route maps are only applied to Job Requisitions created after the modification.
