Actions for Data migration activity

Dear All,

We are alreasy providing support to a company in SAP HR. One of its division has been using a NON SAP application. Now, they are migarating to SAP HR, hence I have created a new PA for them to migrate the employee master data as well as transnational data. This division, has some unique requirements, hence I have already configured actions for this PA by providing  a infogroup modifier.

IGMOD feature

Company code - XYZ

           PA-0777

               Infogroup modifier SH3

Now, when I have to run these same actions for migrating the data employee, I do not want all the infotypes configured in the infogroup to get populated because, these employees are inactive as of today, but the client wants the transactional data for these employees.

For e.g. Action - Away to work will have the following infotypes as:

0000

0001

0034

0008

and a custom infotype.

But during data migration activity, I just want infotypes.

0000

0001

0034

Please help me with the config steps in such scenario. Should I create a new infogroup menu and then create actions so that both kinds of requirements can work simultaneously.

Or should I finish with me data migration first and then reconfigure the original infogroup.

Regards

Simran Longia

    Identify those employees for whom you do not want to maintain 0008 and custom info type while performing action for those employees skip those 2 info types same record in LSMW or BDC what ever the way you are going to upload data into the system then it will not get updated and system itself skips the records while uploading.

    Dear Simran,

    We do have so many ways to achieve your requirement

    1. To execute the action, 0000 & 0001 info types are mandatory.

    2. So Just maintain 2 info types for any action and remaining info types you may update through LSMW.

    or

    1. You can update all respective info types for any action through LSMW (Based on client requirement).

    IGMOD: Executing of info types to perform a sequential order based on employee group.

    hope it may help to you...!

    • Dear Simran,

      My suggestion don't go with BDC because in future if you would like change or add one more info type for particular action again BDC will has to be modified so again Abaper need to be involved so Just write LSMW.

      Note: You forgot to mention info type 0000, remember you should have to maintain info type 0000 in info group for any action without this action can't be executed.

    Hi Simran,

    my suggestion go with separate LSMW for separation action and re-hire action.

    There are too many transactions for separation and rehire for every employee, with LSMW manual efforts will increase a lot and also will be very time consuming. Hence thinking for a BDC.

    This is just one time activity for data migration.

    Best and easy way is creating LSMW.

    for existence of employee in the system you have to at least create IT0000 IT0001 and IT0002. lets call it Technical hiring (technical hiring action). Upload all your employees to default position via this action. After for example supposed date for example 01.01.2015 you can assign your employers to real positions. lets call it Org assignment action which will contain only IT0000 and IT0001. There are plenty of way of meeting your requirement. But in any cases using LSMW is highly recommended.

    Regards
