Is it possible to default effective date in Payment Information portlet with current Pay Cycle begin date?
Employee Central: Payment Information
Reproducing the Issue
Use the function Get Pay Calnedar Begin or End or Check date() in a business rule to get start date of a Pay Cycle and assign the rule to effectiveStartDate field in paymentInformationV3 object. It works fine when the effective date is correct, ie when the effective date is after Pay Cycle Begin date and before End date. If the user enters a wrong effective date, the system errors with the configured message and the user will have to enter the correct date.
The approach is documented in the "Employee Central Payroll" implementation guide: https://help.sap.com/viewer/185f14fbe60d4bbb8d7d5e4f8d89b24b/PRODUCTION/en-US/935ea7c1513e4a88a8bb46f5ccc20b21.html
There is an enhancement request (ECT-30672) for resolving the issue with business rules. Currently we don't have any confirmed release date for this enhancement. Please contact your CSM or SAP hotline number to know more details about it. Once the enhancement is implemented, it'll be publised in the corresponding release notes.
