2678155 - 1808 - Rule-based generation of UserID / Username for Hires and Rehires (with New Employment)


Customers often use rules to create the UserIDs/Usernames of newly hired or rehired employees. Such a rule typically creates a number of different number ranges dependent on Legal entity/Country. This process will not work when an employee is rehired (using the new employment option). With the PersonID unchanged, the mechanism of generating on UserID/username (which works via the PersonID) is not being triggered.

In b1808, an enhancement was implemented to meet the UserID / Username generation both in New Hire and Rehire with New Employment.
