2405270 - Manage Position via Position Org Chart


  • When editing a position via the Position Org Chart using the "Manage" button, the data is NOT synchronized immediately to the incumbent as per design, ANd no 'Data Change' Event Reason (ER) is created in the job information history of the incumbent (the employee). This results in an replication error to SAP Payroll as SAP Payroll always demands a data change event reason for a change in job information.
  • The problem takes place when position data is changed via the "Manage Position" link or when making chages using "Admin Center > Manage Data".
  • Attempt to take away all Manage Positions and Manage Data Permission, this causes problems where the HR person can not see the history of the position. This behaviour is very inconsistent in the system and can cause other unwanted behaviors.
