2437722 - Import XML : Start offboarding at step 2


We are trying to import employees to Employee Step of Offboarding process, what StartStep's value i need to put?

I tried for onboarding process, it worked when i put "NES". However, it did not work when i put "ES" for offboarding. 

 <!-- First Process Step -->
        <xpresshr:Field name="XpressHR.StartStep" value="ES" /


The HRXML.ImportNEwHire.xslt file will have below code:

 <xsl:call-template name="item">

        <xsl:with-param name="key">StartedStep</xsl:with-param>

        <xsl:with-param name="value">

          <xsl:variable name="step" select="/hrxml:NewHire/hrxml:UserArea/xpresshr:Field[@name='XpressHR.StartStep']/@value" />


            <xsl:when test="($step = 'PHV') or ($step = '1')">UNCOMPLETED_SECTION1</xsl:when>

            <xsl:when test="($step = 'NES') or ($step = '2')">UNCOMPLETED_SECTION2</xsl:when>

            <xsl:when test="($step = 'OS') or ($step = '3')">UNCOMPLETED_SECTION3</xsl:when>




So it should work when we use below code in the import xml.

<xpresshr:Field name="XpressHR.StartStep" value="NES" />


<xpresshr:Field name="XpressHR.StartStep" value="2" />
