Dynamic Action stopped working after upgrading to EHP8 from EHP6

Dear Experts,

We have configured IT0041 dynamic action in T588Z. Once IT0041 is saved during New Hire Action (S1), IT0019 subtype 1 will be defaulted to Hire Date + 6 months.

Infotype Subtype Field Name Function character Sequence Number Step Variable function part Infotype text 0041 04 500 **CREATE IT0019 FOR NEW HIRE** Date Specifications 0041 04 501 P T001P-MOLGA='13' Date Specifications 0041 04 502 P PSPAR-TCLAS='A' Date Specifications 0041 04 503 P P0000-MASSN='S1' Date Specifications 0041 04 511 I INS,0019,01 Date Specifications 0041 04 512 W P0019-TERMN=P0000-BEGDA Date Specifications 0041 04 513 W P0019-VTRAN='6' Date Specifications 0041 04 514 W P0019-VTRZH='012' Date Specifications 0041 04 515 W P0019-VTROP='+' Date Specifications

This worked well until we upgraded to EHP8 in dev/test (a separate box), the dynamic action stopped working. IT0019 is dropped from the New Hire action completely (0019 is not included in the hiring infogroup, it is triggered via the dynamic action).

I have compared all the configs are exactly the same. All the other dynamic action works correctly. For example, we have also configured so that after IT0019 probation task date is saved, this populates copies the date into IT0041 subtype 18 probation due date. This still works fine. I have checked the sequence numbers (in case they are different in EHP8) are fine as they are used in other dynamic actions.

As a workaround, I have added IT0019 into the Hiring infogroup (subtype 01), this comes up after 0014 is saved but the task date is not automatically populated.

Are you able to shed some light or point me to where else I should be checking to solve this issue?

Thank you so much in advance!

    Hi All,

    We have fixed the dynamic action issue. Below is just for your reference in case you are interested.

    The problem is in the check if the preconditions are fulfilled to create infotype 0019. Field P0000-MASSN is not available in EHP8 for this check. Instead field MASSN of structure PSPAR has to be used in the new enhancement pack if you are within a personal action/personal event (PA40). Below is our revised config.

    Happy Easters SAPiens! :)

    04 500 **CREATE IT0019 FOR NEW HIRE**
    04 501 P T001P-MOLGA='13'
    04 502 P PSPAR-TCLAS='A'
    04 503 P PSPAR-MASSN='S1' (changed from P0000-MASSN)
    04 511 I INS,0019,01
    04 512 W P0019-TERMN=PSPAR-BEGDA (changed from P0000-BEGDA)
    04 513 W P0019-VTRAN='6'
    04 514 W P0019-VTRZH='012'
    04 515 W P0019-VTROP='+'
