New Hire Process - HCM processes and Forms - HR Admin Services

Hi All,

The 'New Hire' sample process delivered with the HCM processes and Forms reserves the Employee Number(PERNR) from the Number Range even before the update to the backend is attempted. The new Employee Number is reserved when the Process Object is created (Workflow is triggered), which is not desirable as the 'New Hire' process may be rejected by an approver.

is there anyway to stop new Employee Number being generated when the Process Object is created, and generate the New Employee Number when the update to the backend is performed?

I will appreciate any ideas around this.

Thanks,

Saurabh

PS: posting the question in the Workflow Area as well, Just in case...

    Hi,

    You can update the table of the number ranges (NRIV) by subtracting one value if the approver rejects.

    Hope that it will solve your problem.

    Regards,

    Manoj.

    Thanks for your reply, I was actually looking for a way to stop the HCM P&F framework from creating/reserving the number range as we intend to use the workflow for routing/approval purposes and not to update the data.

    Keep in mind that those "sample processes" are only meant to serve as examples. SAP states that these should not be used in a production environment. I think you should look at creating your own process and really understand how the services are kicked off along the process flow to "do the work" of the process.
