2618726 - Syncing the Country of Company between Employee Central and the SuccessFactors Platform


Set up the HRIS sync mapping between Employee Central and the SuccessFactors platform so that you can use Data Protection and Privacy features to purge inactive user data from the system.

An employee's Country is used to verify which of the Data Retention Time Management rules should be followed for the given employees data.

The HRIS sync mapping for the Country is  hard-coded in the system using the Coprorate Address of the Location (Job Information > Location > Corporate Address > Country), but this might not suffice for customer configuration or requirements.

Therefore another option is to synchronize the "Country of Company" (which is derived from the Country of Registration value defined on the Legal Entity) to the Country field in the Platform.

If this sync is not set up correctly, the data purge features for data protection and privacy may not run successfully or retention times may be calculated incorrectly.
