2744518 - Unable to define an org unit as a reporting line unit

Symptom

Unable to define an org unit as a reporting line unit.  Reporting Line Unit checkbox is greyed out.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Organizational Management workcenter
2. Select Organizational Structure view
3. Select the respective org unit
4. Navigate to Definitions tab

Then you can find Reporting Line Unit checkbox is greyed out.

Cause

The system of record for reporting line structures is Employee Central. When the replication scenario is scoped it is no longer possible to edit reporting line unit properties in the organizational management work center. It is also not possible to define an existing organizational center of different type to also be a reporting line unit. Reporting line units are only created automatically during replication based on the manager assignment of the replicated employees.

Resolution

This is an expected system behavior. Please maintain the reporting line structures in Employee Central
