In this blog, I am going to explain how to do the mass change of position data in Employee Central. There may be different business reasons for performing mass changes of position data.
Some Business Reasons for mass position data update:
If we implement custom filter/filters in position tile as per my last blog then we need to update the position data for populating the filter values.
Position description needs to be modified for a department/division at mass level.
Sometimes due to re-organization, org assignment data of position object needs to be updated.
Mass level “Reports to position” change.
There may be different other reasons.
Here are the steps to enable & configure mass change for position data in SuccessFactors Employee Central
Step 1: Configure RBP properly. Necessary access for Mass Change is below.
Step 2: In “Configure Object Definition” for object “MassChangeRun” set the visibility of field “useRuleCache” to Editable which is used during mass change to ensure that the mass change runs execute as smoothly as possible & significantly less like to encounter a timeout.
