Structural Authorizations and Default Position

Postby CatcHR » Mon Sep 05, 2011 6:37 pm

HI there,

Our client has implemented structural authorizations and we are experiencing a problem. We have converted a number of terminated and retired employees into the default position and as a result, there is no Org unit indicated in I0001 - Organizational assignment.

When we switched on Structural Authorizations, and assigned PD profiles, the terminated and retired EE's in the default positions do not appear to anyone who has a PD profile - because they are not in an org unit. This is not a problem for active employees who have terminated or retired and are in position 99999999, because their organizational unit still remains in I0001 - Organizational Assignment.

Another factor at this client is that there are two Org Unit root organizatinoal units - one for the company organizational hierachy and another structure for their customers.

Any advise on how to allow the HR and Payroll departments to have access to the converted terminated or retired employees (who are in the Default position with no org unit assignment) as well as access to the root organizational unit that is the org hierachy while limited access to the root org that is for their customers?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated. We are on ECC 6.0 EHP4 (going to 5).

It's not 100% answering your question but for this very reason the protocol that I have seen most used is to ensure all leavers are assigned to an arbitrary position e.g. 99999999
