SAP GE: Host Activation action


Hi all,

While configuring global employee in SAP, I encounter error while running "assignment activation" from the front end.

By default under user parameter, Action type is 82. However after execution it gives error that personnel " Action type 82 is not for Activation of Global Employee". Looking at T529A, there is neither an entry for 82 nor for 83. Looking at SAP help, it points that:

"You can activate an assignment by means of the following personnel actions:

1. Host Activation (82)

· A Host record is created provided that the status of the record on infotype Global Assignment Details (0715) has been set to To be activated. The status is eventually set to In Progress.

· A Home record is created with the status set to To be activated.

2. Expatriation (83)

· Activate the assignment by means of the personnel action Expatriation (83).

Am I required to create a new activation action for GE? If so what infotypes to use. Otherwise, how do I go about activating assignment. In IT0715 I can only change status to "To be activated" and am stuck here.

Kind regards.
