2242618 - Mass creation of Employee ID's using Import employee data functionality


When performing Import employee data functionality if User ID field is empty would Sucessfactors instance  create a new ID?



EMPLOYEE CENTRAL: Import Employee Data - (Basic Import)

Reproducing the Issue

1.       Customer is performing basic import keeping user id or person id as empty field.

2.       The file is as below :


 3.       Report:




User-id field was empty.


 1. While performing employee upload user id or person id is mandatory. If left blank it will not process the user.


2. In ‘Add new Hire’ Wizard user-id need not be mentioned, it is generated automatically or customer can specifically mention.

But in employee import (Basic import) it does not generate automatically.


If you would like to see  the Basic User Import automatically generate UserID, please raise this as an enhancement request via the Custmer Community website.
