Accessing Future Transfers and Hires



Employee Central 2.0


Add attribute extend-by-n-days in succession data model besides the hris-element.

Details are in Handbook: Managing Employment in Employee Central

Updates need to be made to the XML: (implementation partners/support can help with authorization from customer).

1. Create an SAP Cloud Support ticket to update the Succession Data Model (SDM). They should add the new extend by n days parameter to the dynamic group filter to the relevant HRIS elements. This can only be done in the XML and not by updating the SDM in the BCUI.

<hris-element-ref refid="jobInfo" extend-by-n-days="60">
<hris-field-ref refid="location"/>

2. After the parameter is enabled in the SDM and the HRIS Sync is updated, navigate to the permission group settings in your system.

3. Create a new permission group in the system for admins and managers. For example, you could create a group called Job Information - Department - Extend by 60 Days. This means, that when executed, the query would select employees with department of finance from today until 60 days from today.

4. Grant the role to the managers and admins. Select Only the direct reports in these groups below and then select the permission group created in the previous step.

5. Save your settings.

Please note this is as per effective dated system.

For example, an employee gets transferred to a new location and with this future date transaction there is manager change too. This will work for current manager of the employee not for the future dated manager.

Because both the criteria of the RBP group for granted group (based on the new manager direct reportee relationship) and the target group based on location(company transfer of employee) will take effect on future date.
