2587017 - Business Rules With Base Object Job Information Model Trigger in the Rehire Inactive Wizard


We have a business rule with the base object job information model. We have observed that this rule triggers in the rehire inactive employee wizard. Why does this happen?

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

Reproducing the Issue

  • 1. Hire a new employee via the add new employee wizard
  • 2. Observe business rule doesn't trigger
  • 3. Rehire an inactive employee via the rehire inactive wizard
  • 4. Observe the rule triggers


The data in the add new employee wizard isn't saved until the data is submitted by pressing save at the bottom of the add new employee wizard

The data in the rehire inactives wizard is already saved in the database from the time the user was hired and terminated in the system


The Employee Information and Employee Information Model objects were created specifically for the add new employee wizard to trigger on job information element in the add new employee wizard

The job information (model) base object(s) only trigger on job info if the data is already in the system, so saved to the database

Once a user is hired in the system, these rules will trigger off of job info for employee's

As the data for users in the rehire inactive wizard is stored in the database, job information rules will trigger and not employee information base object rules

Please refer to the Using Business Rules in SuccessFactors handbook, specifically the base objects section for more info

  • This is currently expected behavior. All rules related to employee data, will trigger during  New Hire.
  • The "Employee Information" or "Employee Information Model" are used to ensure those rules will trigger in the New Hire Wizard only, but it does not mean rules with other Base Objects will not trigger in during New Hire.
