Multiple root in Orgchart

Dear All,

Is it possible when the user belongs to 2 orgunits or more to have a virtual orgunit root and under this the user will have his root orgunits?

Now when I implemented the dynamic rooting for user. it shows the root object as the first orgunit the user belongs to. and discared the second one.

Best regards

    Hi Mohamed,

    What version of OrgChart is this and is it Live or Staged? I expect that if you are using dynamic rooting then this is not possible. However, if you are using Staged I expect there might be some clever coding that can be done to achieve this.

    Best regards,

      Hi Mohamed,

      Not in the live version unless you alter the function module to return a "dummy" node to the application with all the users nodes underneath it. Another way could be to create a new evaluation path that contains a function module to derive this information. Other than that it can't actually be done on the application side.

      Best regards,

    The concept of dummy node is not supported in the regular, Out Of Box build of OC 3.0 Live.

    As Luke suggested, you could handle this by using either a custom evaluation path (P-S-O-O) or with an HR-OCI view design to fit that purpose.

    Best,

    Thanks Luke

    Thanks Sebastian

    If I want to go with the evaluation path solution that means I should create a new function module? Or Can I use the existing fm with another view ID?

    Another question that means I will have 3 hierarchies one for person the dummy node at the begining one for positions and another for orgs? Right?

    • Hi M. Ibrahim,

      I expect for this solution you will probably need to create a function module to create the dummy root in the output of the HR-OCI module. I think this module exports XML (possibly compressed XML) to OrgChart. I have seen similar technical solutions created to derive S A 002 S relationships so I think a technical solution is possible.

      I don't think you'd necessarily need to create a new orgchart, but it depends on your requirements. You could change the existing HR-OCI config in SAP for this orgchart or if you add new HR-OCI configuration then you can create a new orgchart.

      Good luck!
