 Sync Logic

 Corporate Address

  •  Hard coded mapping logic or As configured in Succession Data Model.
  •  The Corporate Address sync mapping is configured in Succession data model, although the Corporate Address and the Location (where the address are used) are Foundation objects defined in the Corporate Data Model.
  •  Note: as corporate address is linked to location and location is linked to employees, changing the address has impact on several employees: for all employees linked to the changed location, the syncing is applied.

 Example for mapping Corporate Address.

<hris-element-ref refid="homeAddress"> 

    <hris-mapping entity-type="home" > 

        <hris-field-ref refid="country"/> 

        <standard-element-ref refid="country"/> 


    <hris-mapping entity-type="business" > 

        <hris-field-ref refid="address1"/> 

        <standard-element-ref refid="addressLine1"/> 



 Personal Address

 As configured in Succession Data Model; there is no hard coded mapping.

 Example for Personal Address

 <hris-element-ref refid="homeAddress"> 

    <hris-mapping entity-type="home" > 

        <hris-field-ref refid="state"/> 

        <standard-element-ref refid="state"/>
