E-recruimtment: Question about landscape standalone with use of MSS view

Hi ,

Has anyone already done an implementation of E-recruitment with the use of MSS view ?

Or have you reliable information about the combination landscape - manager view ?

For security reasons the choice for the landscape standalone is the best.

But in documentation of SAP we have read that the Manager view isn't possible in a standalone landscape:

ERP installation (Recruiting as integral part of the ERP solution)

- Required for MSS Manager Role integration and ESS integration

Kind Regards

    Hi Pascale,

    you won't find a lot of information to this topic. As far as I heard the MSS manager scenario using adobe interactive forms for requesting requisitions which has been delivered with E-recruiting EhP3 is not running in production anywhere.

    Some coleagues of mine are currently taking part in an evaluation of this. It is supposed to be possible to set up the scenario with a standalone installation. For that the MSS scenario is running on the ERP server an communicationg with the standalone e-recruiting to get / transfer requisitin information and everything for evaluating candidates via questionaire. The communication is driven from the erp system (no call from e-recruiting to erp) to keep security issues low.

    I am not sure if that really works and how the quality of it is (if i remember that in the original SP8 delivery of webdynpro for candidates it was not possible to apply in the system and seeing one or two questions to that topic here i am a bit concerned but this is just subjective).

    So it should work. Unfortunately I have no offical document to provide. Perhaps I can tell you more about the stability of the solution in about a month.

    Best Regards

    • Hi Shane,

      with the 2 server landscape you would not even need the web dispatcher. You have an own WebAS as proxy.

      But still, the integrated installation is no good idea no matter what SAP writes on the shiny sales power points. I know that if you check this forum most topics are about integrated systems but how many are life? With over a dozen e-recruiting rollouts in mind which made it successfully into production (In some of them I was technical consulting lead) I can just say - "do not install it on the HR machine as there are functional specification errors in the application" -. sad but true.

      Easy example: if you have a solid HR core installation you probably use structural authorizations so managers can access their subordinates (for portal or managers desktop which is still often used). Now such a manager wants to create a requisition using the standard bsp application. In the last step he shall choose the responsible recruiter. But he won't find him as he has no authorization for the HR department. And noone will touch/change the structural authorizations on the organization which have been deployed over years for e-recruiting.

      Just to logically solve issuses resulting from structural authorization we needed over 2 extra months in an integrated rollout. Not to count the customer adjustments to get the system running, which should work in standard. It only worked as a very special hr process together w/ a ton of developments and not using internal candidates for applications allowed us.

      And this is only one of the problems you will encounter.
