2602352 - LMS: How to Update the Shopping Account Type in LMS to 'External' using Connector Based on Status

Symptom

  •  Set Shopping Account Type as External

Environment

SAP Successfactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Resolution

LMS uses a copy property to set the LMS Shopping Account Type based upon the STATUS value.

Options are: INTERNAL = intenral shopping account EXTERNAL = external shopping account.

By default, the mapping of Employee Status to LMS Shopping Account Type is:

  • ACTIVE = Internal
  • ACTIVE_EXTERNAL = External
  • INACTIVE = Internal
  • INACTIVE_EXTERNAL = External

To make this work, the following must exist in the CONNECTORS configuration file.

sfuser.field.mapping.data.NOTACTIVE=STATUS
sfuser.field.transform.data.NOTACTIVE.N=active,active_external,ACTIVE,ACTIVE_EXTERNAL
sfuser.field.transform.data.NOTACTIVE.Y=inactive,inactive_external,INACTIVE,INACTIVE_EXTERNAL
sfuser.connector.copy.field.mappings=SHOPPING_ACCT_TYPE=NOTACTIVE, JL_DESC=JL_ID, COL_NUM8_VAL=ORG_ID, REGION_ID=DMN_ID, COL_NUM12_VAL=ACCT_ID
sfuser.field.transform.data.SHOPPING_ACCT_TYPE.INTERNAL=active,ACTIVE,inactive,INACTIVE
sfuser.field.transform.data.SHOPPING_ACCT_TYPE.EXTERNAL=active_external,ACTIVE_EXTERNAL,inactive_external,INACTIVE_EXTERNAL

(If you are using User Connector, replace 'sfuser.' with 'user.')

Note: The Employee Export job in BIZX provisioning does not include employees with status active_external or inactive_external. Hence, to get them updated in LMS, a user data file for these external employees must be manually and separately generated and placed in the folder.
