2396706 - Person ID Assignment for New Dependents


Can the Person ID of an Employee and the Person ID of the Dependent overlap?

If you create a new dependent via UI and it creates the ID from it. What sequence does it follow?


Employee Central - Dependents Management

Reproducing the Issue

Create Dependents via User Interface.

GoTo any employee personal information page. Edit and Add dependents.


It is not possible for a dependent person ID to overlap with Employee Person ID unless a 'Dependent import' has been done inputting person ID which would overlap with Employee's Person ID.


Clarification from the product team:

If you are adding a dependent from UI(ESS page), system will automatically generate a random string for person-id-external of the dependent, and it does not interfere with the sequence we have for the employee id generation.


Hence, please make sure that while importing the Dependents details, you do not input a 'Person ID external' which would interfere with any other employee's person ID.

Please make sure that you are following a different sequence for Employee IDs and Dependent IDs.
