Employee Central: New Hire

Employee Central: Business Rule

Employee Central: Compensation Information

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Add New Employee;
  2. Fill in all the information relevant for the Identity, Personal and Job Info session;
  3. When clicking in continue the Compensation info session is loaded;
  4. There the pay component should be defaulted;


Before you start to configure, please bear in mind that the best practice is to have this business rule as onInit, this wan when the compensation portlet is loaded during the new hire you'll be able to see the pay component defaulted.

  1. First you need to create a business rule with base object "Employee Information" or "Employee Information Model":


  1. When creating the logic for the business rule you need to define the paycomponent values using the "SET" condition, this is because onInit rules for defaulting pay components must be created using the set conditions:


  1. The path to set the values must be Employee Information (or Employee Information Model) > Pay Component Recurring > [field] see below:


After you define this business rule the values will then defaulted in the pay component recurring session, if you want to default some pay component non recurring, this uses the same process described below.
