2962874 - [ONB2.0] Know issue in ONB 2.0 Crossboarding Flow


  • Currently Onboarding 2.0 integrated with Employee Central and are facing issues with Crossboarding Transfers. Various fields such as and Time Zone, among others that usually get updated via onChange Business Rules in the UI, however this cannot happen as the data is saved directly in the system.
  • Crossboarding is initiated from RCM not retaining existing values in EC. Values are populated as per mapping only and all existing values are getting blank
  • OnChange and OnSave rules are not triggered when Crossboarding  is initiated  from RCM
  • Job Info - Fields such as Company Entry Date, Time in Company don't auto-populate.
  • Writing OnSave Business Rules (with both Job Information Model and Employee Information Model as the base object) but based on extensive testing it appears that Business Rules are not triggered when data is sent through Crossboarding.
  • System will set any values that are not mapped from Onboarding to EC as ‘null’.
