2654767 - EP Destination Fields Still Editable via UI for EC Users


Some EP destination fields are editable via the UI but the user is an EC user. Other destination fields are correctly not editable.


Employee Central - HRIS Sync

Reproducing the Issue

1. Navigate to Profile of an EC User
2. Edit Employee Profile
3. Find some destination fields are correctly not editable (greyed out) but some other destination fields are still editable


Presently there is inconsistency in the UI behaviour of the EP destination fields defined in custom AND hard-coded HRIS sync-mappings where the destination fields in EP are either editable or not editable.

Current Behaviour:

The UI will make certain EP fields read-only - but this is inconsistent and there is no available documentation that explains which fields will become read-only in the UI.


There is currently an open enhancement request (ECT-92446) with SAP Development to have this behaviour made consistant for all EP destination fields and to have documentation updated to reflect this.

New Behaviour Request

After the enhancement the behaviour will be as follows, to prevent users overwriting the data synchronized to EP fields for EC users only -:

1) If the user is an EC user
The destination fields in EP will all be Read-Only in the UI

2) If the users is not and EC user
All destination fields will remain editable in the UI

Once this enhancement has been confirmed included in an upcoming release this KBA will be updated reflecting such. Please monitor this KBA for further updates.
