The External Code for the new positions will be determined based on the Flag "Is the Position External Code Auto Generated?" in the Position Management Settings:

  • If YES, the external code will be generated via rule which has to be added to the Object Position as ValidateRule or SaveRule.
  • If NO, the external code will be generated based on the name of copited position and added UUID.
