  • HRIS Element Identifier, userAccountInfo, is an optional element which can be used to define Employee Information > User Name during the Hire process.
  • By default, userAccountInfo is not turned on. If you wish to use it, you must enable it via Manage Business Configuration:

  • When you enable it, the system will automatically make it mandatory:

  • Once turned on, a mandatory User Name field will appear during the Add New Employee process under Employee Information.
  • There is validation in place to ensure the User Name is unique:
