2727797 - 1811: Pay Component Group Sums not updating after Salary Change


  • Starting b1811, you noticed that sometimes when you make salary changes to employees, the Pay Component Group Sums (AnnualizedSalary) is not updating
  • The behavior is very intermittent. Sometimes, the PCGs are updated, sometimes not
  • Due to this, there are instances where Workflows are not triggered or the incorrect PCG Sum amount is shown in the Workflow Request page


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Compensation Information
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Rules

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to any employee's profile > Compensation Information
  2. Make a change on Pay Component amount > Check if Pay Component Group is updatedpayComponentChange.png

  3. If updated, repeat the same steps and check if the Pay Component Group sum is updated

  4. In certain instances, the Pay Component Group sum is not updated because of this, there are instances wherein workflows are not triggered


This happening due to a code issue in the current release, specifically with the Compensation Information UI.


Our Engineering team is aware of the issue and we are currently working on a fix for this. Please check this KBA for updates on the resolution.

As a workaround, if possible, you can grant the "Total Compensation History" permission under "Manage Permission Roles" > Employee Widgets. This should prevent UI errors from occurring.
