  • Employee Import permissions
  • Pre-requisite ADMIN permissions to perform Employee Import


  • SF BizX Foundation
  • Employee Central


To perform an Employee Import, there are pre-requisite permissions that needs to be given for the admin/user performing the Employee Import. 

 Checking the Employee Import Target Audience:

    a. Go to Admin Center > search for 'Manage Employee Import'
    b. Enter the user's details (User who is going to perform the Employee Import)
    c. Select the appropriate Target Audience on whom this User can perform import (also valid for any edits later)
    d. We recommend to select ALL in each category if you are using single username for all the Employee Imports.

   If 'Manage Employee Import Permission via RBP' is enabled for the insatnce, you won't see the above mentioned settings.
   You would need to specify the Target Audience in the Permission Role where you are selecting the Employee Import permission. Please check this KBA 2186277 for more details.

*SAP Note: This is valid for NON-EC instance Employee Import and EC instance Basic Import.
