    CP is the central person ID. CP is the global id which gets automatically created when you hire a

    new employee. This CP ID remains same for an employee in the event of country reassignments.

    - You can get the CP of an employee from infotype '0709' or you can extract this information from

    infotype HRP1001 with the following query.

    - Enter otype as P and sclas as CP and enter pernr in objid field.You will get the central person .

    Now re-enter the otype as CP and enter the OBJID with the value from sobid which you got by the

    previous entry. Resultant is all the pernrs that are associated to the Central person.

    - The number range of this CP can be realised from the TCode 'OONR' under subgroup '01CP'.

    - Most often systems are configured in a way that your CP id is same as the PERNR when

    you hire a new employee. This CP id remains same as long as he is in the organization, though his

    PERNR can change if there is a country reassignment.

      CP (Central Person) is an object type which is linked via a relationship to object type P (Person). CP object is created in background while hiring a person (necessary config should be in place). CP is majorly required when there are multiple countries implemented in a system and an Employee needs to be re-assigned to a country other than Home couuntry. In that case a new PERNR is generated for this employee for the new Country and this PERNR is again linked to the same CP object. Thus all the various PERNRs of Employee are liked to the same CP which uniquely identifies the Employee.

      CP->PERNR1 (Object type P)

      CP->PERNR2 (Object type P)

      CP->PERNR3 (Object type P)

      CP->PERNR4 (Object type P)

      This helps in tracking the Employee with different PERNRs in different countries with the a unique Central Person ID (CP).

      Hope this helps.

    Hi Shruti

    Sysytem will create the central person automatically, in the backend. In general terms we can not create the centeral person in SAP HR.

    In payroll posting system creates the relationship between object type P & CP

    If system will not generate the CP automatically then execute the report: RPU46CX_CENTRAL_PERSON_ONLINE

    The CP concept is used to interlinked thetwoo employee who is going on any exaptriate assignment.

    This will be a relationship whihc is maintained in 1001 - OM relationship infotype.

    At the time of hiring action you have to give the reference personnel number and that will create the reltionship auotmatically and aslo pull the record of the reference personnel number which are common and shared between the 2 employees.
