2609079 - Document Transfer from Recruiting to Onboarding 1.0


Customer would like to know is there any way that documents uploaded in Recruiting can flow to Onboarding module.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding 1.0
  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


There is not a functionality to map, or transfer documents from Recruiting to Onboarding 1.0 using the standard field mapping, which maps the information upon Initiating Onboarding 1.0 . The field mapping of Recruiting to Onboarding 1.0 only support data field types that are not documents and/or attachments.

The way to accomplish that would be relying on the implementation using APIs to export the data from Recruiting Management(which exports attachments in a base 64 encoded gzip format), and import the same into the Onboarding 1.0 system using the API provided by ONB. This could be an automated process where the custom implementation would read the data sent over from RCM API and upload to ONB using the ONB API. This would be a similar implementation to what is done when integrating with some external ATS systems which want to import attachments to ONB.

This API implementation to Export the Data from Recruiting and Import into Onboarding 1.0 , or something created based upon customer requirement, there is nothing standard that SAP provides. This requires a custom implementation with a Partner.
