2319763 - Role Based Permissions for email address types


  • Is there a way to permission Business and Personal email types seperately in Employee Central?
  • Is there a way to custom email types in Employee Central?


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud
  • Employee Central


With Role Based Permissions (RBP), we can set permissions on each type of email address, both Business and Personal email address types. This can be accomplished when setting up the permission roles via Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles:

  • In Manage Permission Roles, select the role you want to edit
  • Under Permission Settings, in the Employee Data section, locate the permission for 'Email Information' and 'Business Email Address'
  • Adjust the permissions as necessary


You must also ensure that the picklist values are maintained correctly:

B - Business

P - Personal

O - Other

When configuring this in the ecEmailType picklist, you must ensure both external code fields and the Non-unique external code fields are filled out.


It is not possible to permission custom email types

The two standard email types we deliver are business and personal, which each have a permission for themselves

No permission will be created for a custom email type
