  • There is no rule type defined for Spot Awards or this is incorrectly spelt.
  • Please note this should be spelt exactly as follows: SpotAwardsEligibility.
  • Having this incorrectly spelt will result in the rule not populating within the awards program.


Spot Awards does not use the rules defined for Compensation (rules created under the picklist compensationEligibility) or for Variable Pay (rules created under the picklist varpayEligibility).

First, check under Admin Center> Configure Business Objects and select 'Picklist' then 'Rule Type' to ensure SpotAwardsEligibility is available and defined.


If this is not within the picklist please have this added.

Should you find there is no picklist created for Rule Type, then please create one.

To create it, go to Admin Center> Configure Business Objects> Create New> Picklist

Once this has been defined/created you will then be ale to see Spot Awards within Configure Business Rules and the program.
