Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding 1.0 - All Versions

Resolution

Integration Type

Suite

The standard integration between SF Recruiting, Onboarding and Employee Central modules. The modules communicate with each other using system properties and no additional mapping configuration is required. This is the recommended option if you are not using an external ATS or HRIS.

Key = Option ID

Display Key = Default Label

Ext Code Key = External_Code (This field should be mapped in Data Dictionary as string)

 

Code Based

Integration using the SF HCM picklist external codes (IDs) of the selectable values of the field. This option should be used only when an external ATS or an external HRIS is integrated with the Onboarding module. Customers can re-use any existing SF HCM picklist external code to integrate the external ATS, or HRIS with SF Onboarding.

Key = External Code

Display Key = Default Label

 

Label Based

Integration using the display text, also called labels, of the selectable values of the field. This option should be used only when an external ATS or an external HRIS is integrated with the SF Onboarding module and the modules CANNOT be integrated using the Code based integration. **This is NOT a recommended approach; this option is provided only for extreme cases where integration using external codes cannot be used.

Locale = e.g. en_US

Key = Label of set locale

Display Key = Label
