SuccessFactors Job Description Manager

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Admin Center > Check Tool
  2. Pick the relevant option from the dropdown under Application

Resolution

Job Description Manager (JDM) - Before enabling Job Profile Builder this is the only option available to you.

Checks available are displayed below:

  • Data Sequence Issue: You should run this check when you are receiving errors when trying to save changes in JDM Objects. This will look for issues caused in the GUID of existing Families/Roles/Competencies. Those issues happen when you import data and manually define the GUID. Please note that the GUID should always be left blank in imports for new objects, as it is generated by the system. In case the check finds a GUID that is higher than the Sequence (the pointer used to automatically define the GUID in the system), you will need to engage support via incident, providing a screenshot of the results message as displayed below, as well as company ID, Datacenter, Support access, and written approval for Engineering team to fix the issue by running a script.

  • CheckID: JDMCheckForSequence

  • Readiness of Competency Description Data for Job Description Manager to Job Profile Builder Migration: This will go through the Competencies in JDM searching for HTML/Javascript code that is not supported in Job Profile Bulder. That code will need to be removed from competency description before running Migration to Job Profile Builder. CheckID: JDMInvalidCompetencyDescCheck

  • Readiness of Role Data for Job Description Manager to Job Profile Builder Migration: This check will list Job Codes that are mapped to more than one role, which is supported in JDM but not in Job Profile Builder. Before running the migration you need to make sure that no Job Codes are mapped to multiple roles. CheckID: SameJobCodeWithMultipleRoleValidation

Job Profile Builder - Once Job Profile Builder is enabled you see this option as well. Run the relevant checks to validate data after migration.

Checks available are displayed in below image:

 

  • Data Sequence Issue: You should run this check when you are receiving errors when trying to save changes in Job Profile Builder Objects. This will look for issues caused in the GUID of existing JPB objects. Those issues happen when you import data and manually define the GUID. Please note that the GUID should always be left blank in imports for new objects, as it is generated by the system. In case the check finds a GUID that is higher than the Sequence (the pointer used to automatically define the GUID in the system), you will need to engage support, as this has to be fixed via script currently. CheckID: JPBCheckForSequence

  • Job Description Manager to Job Profile Builder Migration: These 3 checks will look for data that is present in JDM Families, Roles, Competencies, but has not been migrated to Job Profile Builder, and it can be used if you have already migrated but didn't fix the migration issues beforehand.
    • Competencies and behaviors are migrated from Job Description Manager. CheckID: CompetencyMigrationFailuresCheck
    • Families are migrated from Job Description Manager. CheckID: FamilyMigrationFailuresCheck
    • Roles are migrated from Job Description Manager. CheckID: RoleMigrationFailuresCheck
