Environment

SAP SUCCESSFACTORS EMPLOYEE CENTRAL

Reproducing the Issue

1. Make the attachment field mandatory(set field attribute Required to YES) in the Employee Time Object definition.

2. Try to create recurring absence(with attachment) either through ESS UI or Administer Time UI.

Cause

Currently it is a product limitation that when we use recurring absences the attachment field shouldn't be mandatory at object configuration level.

Resolution

Make attachment field as non-mandatory(set field attribute Required to NO) in the Employee Time object definition.

Create a Take Rule to validate whether attachment field has value or not, and trigger the error message if there is no attachment. This Take Rule need to associated with Time Type Configuration.
