HCM Common Features

The following HCM common features include enhancements for Release 10:

HCM Data Loader

HCM Data Loader is a flexible and comprehensive bulk-data-loading solution for business objects across multiple Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management products. You can use it for data-migration, ongoing inbound interfaces, and one-off bulk updates. It supports the bulk load of your configured descriptive and extensible flexfield data, translation data, tree hierarchies, person images, and Document of Record attachments.

Flexible Pipe-Delimited File Format

You can now simplify your inbound integrations by including the business object components and attributes relevant to your use case, whether that be full date-effective history for data migration, or incremental changes for data maintenance. You can supply multiple business object specific files in one compressed zip file and process them together. HCM Data Loader understands the order in which the business object data must be loaded to ensure referenced data is loaded first.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Key Resources

For more information about HCM Data Loader file formats, go to My Oracle Support for the following document:

Secure Data Transfer

You can now optionally deliver encrypted compressed zip files to Oracle’s WebCenter Content server secured by a specific HCM Data Loader account. The compressed zip file is then streamed from the WebCenter Content server and decrypted during import into stage tables before a multi-threaded process loads valid objects into Oracle Fusion. You can use either the Oracle Fusion HCM File Import and Export interface, or the WebCenter Content web service to deliver a zip file to the WebCenter Content server.

Your compressed zip file is deleted by default from the WebCenter Content server as soon as HCM Data Loader has finished streaming it. You can change the default behavior by updating the Delete Source File parameter to No on the Configure HCM Data Loader page. Alternatively, you can choose to retain your source file for an individual file by setting the Delete Source File parameter to No on the Schedule Request window.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Automated or User-Managed Processing

You can now automate inbound interfaces using the WebCenter Content and HCM Data Loader web services, or control the import and loading processes using the new Import and Load Data user interface.

You can use the Import and Load Data user interface to manually initiate the import and optional load of a data set (zip file) and monitor the progress of that data set. The user interface includes a Data Set table and a Business Objects table. The Data Set table displays the data sets or zip files submitted for processing. The Business Objects table displays the business objects that were included in the zip file. On both the Data Set and Business Objects tables the Imported and Loaded Progress columns display the status of import and load.

The Import and Load Data User Interface

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Key Resources

For more information about HCM Data Loader automated or user managed imports, go to My Oracle Support (MOS) for the following document:

Status and Error Reporting

You can use the following methods to review and monitor the status of your import and load requests:

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Key Resources

For more information about status and error handling with HCM Data Loader, go to My Oracle Support (MOS) for the following document:

Flexible Key Support

HCM Data Loader supports the following four key types:

You can create new objects specifying your source-system identifier and continue to maintain and reference that data in Oracle Fusion using your Source Key. Alternatively, supply the User Key information, for example Organization Name, Person Number, or Absence Type. In addition Oracle Fusion’s internal surrogate ID and Globally Unique ID (GUID) can be used.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Key Resources

For more information about flexible key support with HCM Data Loader, go to My Oracle Support (MOS) for the following document:

Purge Person Data

The Purge Person process, available from the Diagnostic Framework, purges the following person-related data from your stage and test environments:

The Purge Person process does not purge data that was created using HCM File-Based Loader, nor does it purge predefined person data.

You can specify which records to purge by supplying comma-delimited person numbers or person IDs. Alternatively, supply a SQL query to return the person IDs for all person records that you want to purge.

Steps to Enable

Raise a service request through My Oracle Support (MOS) to request enablement of the Purge Person process on your stage and test pods.

This process cannot be enabled in production environments.

Tips and Considerations

You can run the Purge Person process without committing the purge so that you can review the results before you delete the data permanently.

Key Resources

For more information on purging person data, see the following document on My Oracle Support (MOS):

Upload of Assignment Records with Effective Dates That Are Later Than the Termination Date

Prevent the upload of invalid assignment records using HCM Data Loaders new validation. Prior to this enhancement, it was possible to load an assignment record for a terminated work relationship where:

You can continue to load assignment records for a terminated work relationship where the effective dates are later than the work relationship termination date, provided that the assignment status is INACTIVE. No other assignment status is valid.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Simplify Global Transfers Performed by Data Upload

Perform global transfers efficiently. A global transfer involves the termination of an existing work relationship with one legal employer and the creation a new work relationship with a different legal employer. The addition of the GlobalTransferFlag attribute enables you to perform global transfers efficiently in uploaded work relationship records.

To perform a global transfer when the source work relationship is the worker’s primary work relationship, you load:

HCM Data Loader automatically terminates the existing primary work relationship and sets the termination date to the day before the start date of the new work relationship.

You can perform a global transfer of the primary work relationship only when no active secondary work relationships exist.

To perform a global transfer when the source work relationship is a nonprimary work relationship, you load:

HCM Data Loader automatically terminates the existing nonprimary work relationship and sets the termination date to the day before the start date of the new work relationship.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Enhanced Validation of Worker Records by HCM Data Loader

Include now only one row for each worker in the data file, when you create workers or update existing workers. As no date-effective attributes are exposed on the worker component, there is no functional reason for storing date-effective history in the PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F table. To correct any attribute of an existing worker record, you must perform a correction.

For new worker records created using HCM Data Loader, the Start Date and Effective Start Date attributes of the worker component must equal the start date of the worker’s earliest work relationship. Any mismatch in these dates now causes an error to be raised.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Global Human Resources

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources enables your organization to plan, manage and optimize all workforce segments using flexible and extensible best practices to realize extraordinary gains while ensuring compliance and increasing total workforce engagement.

Country-Level Address Rule

The Manage Features by Country or Territory task, formerly Manage Payroll Product Usage, now includes options for controlling the address style and the level of address validation. The address style determines which address attributes are available and maintained in the application. The address style can also affect validation, for example, if you specify that geography uses an address style to validate specific attributes. For example, in the United States, the address style can be defined to validate the State attribute.

The combination of address style and address validation determines the level of validation. The values you can select depend on the combination of the country or territory and the selected country extension. For example, for Canada, you can change the address style from its original value only when you set the country extension to Human Resources or None, not Payroll or Payroll Interface.

Manage Features by Country or Territory Page

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

Key Resources

For more information related to this feature go to Applications Help, for the following topics:

Effective Dating

The Extra Information tab in the Manage Person page is enhanced to provide date tracking capabilities. You can now update and correct, and store and retrieve date effective, extra information data for a person.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Ability to Add Transaction Initiator as a Checklist Task Performer

Tasks on a checklist can be assigned to performers either individually or through roles. The tasks can now be assigned to the person who initiated the transaction.

Task Creation

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Access Person Information While Working on a Checklist Task

The performer or the owner can view the basic details of the person for whom the task is being performed, on a checklist task notification. Performers or owner can click the Person Contextual Action (PCA) icon to view additional details about the person including department and location.

Person Basic Details

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Manage Delay Duration of a Checklist Task

While defining tasks you can set a delay duration that is used for calculating the planned start and end dates. The planned dates are calculated by adding the delay duration to the allocation date. Tasks get assigned on the allocation date, but tasks which have delay duration specified will have the planned dates reflecting the delay.

How to Create Delays When Creating Tasks

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Restrict Checklist Template to a Localization

As a Human Resources Specialist or a Line Manager, you can choose a template that is applicable to all countries or a specific localization to assign to an employee. You can select the localization when you create a checklist template.

Checklist Template Creation

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Ability to Update Actual Start and End Dates from the Notification

You can also modify the default actual start and end dates in a checklist task notification. The task actual dates get updated accordingly in the checklist.

Start and End Dates Entry

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Approval Notification Personalization

As a Human Resources (HR) Administrator, you can now personalize HCM approval notifications.

Personalizing Approval Notifications

Using the Oracle Page Composer, you can selectively show and hide various components of the notification, including fields, labels and regions.

Display Options

You can edit labels, color, and the page layout.

Audit of HCM Data Roles and Security Profiles

Oracle Fusion Applications supports the audit of changes to various business objects. You can now use this functionality to track and audit changes to HCM data roles and security profiles. Once audit is configured for these business objects, a user with the Internal Auditor job role can review any changes, identify who made them, and see when they were made in the Audit Reports work area.

Reviewing Changes to HCM Security Profiles in the Audit Reports Work Area

Steps to Enable

By default, changes to HCM data roles and security profiles aren’t tracked. To enable tracking and subsequent audit:

  1. Sign in as the Application Implementation Consultant.
  2. Select Setup and Maintenance from the home page.
  3. Search for and select the Manage Audit Policies task.
  4. Click Configure Business Object Attributes in the Oracle Fusion Applications section on the Manage Audit Policies page.
  5. Set Application to HCM Core Setup on the Configure Business Object Attributes page.
  6. Select an object in the Audit column of the table of business objects that appears. For example, select Person Security Profile or Data Role. The Audited Attributes section of the page shows any attributes that will be audited for the selected object.
  7. Click Create to update the list of attributes when the Select and Add Audited Attributes dialog box opens.
  8. Select an attribute for audit and move it to the Selected Attributes section in the Available Attributes section.
  9. Click OK to close the dialog box.
  10. Click Save and Close.
  11. Set Audit Level to Auditing in the Oracle Fusion Applications section on the Manage Audit Policies page.
  12. Click Save and Close.

Tips and Considerations

To turn off all auditing for Oracle Fusion Applications, set Audit Level to None in the Oracle Fusion Applications section of the Manage Audit Policies page.

Shared Person Information in Person Security Profiles

Until now, any person information that was shared with the signed-in user was included unconditionally in person security profile data instance sets. Having to include this information was causing performance problems, even though the Information Sharing feature isn’t widely used. Therefore, it’s been decided to make the inclusion of shared information optional. On the Create Person Security Profile and Edit Person Security Profile pages, you now see the Include shared people information option, which is deselected by default. If you want to include shared information in the security profile data instance set, then you must select this option.

Option to Include Shared Person Information on the Create Person Security Profile Page

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

By default, shared person information is still included in existing person security profiles unless Access to Own Record is the only other criterion in the security profile. If appropriate, you can update existing security profiles to deselect Include shared people information.

Auto Provisioning for the Enterprise

The Apply Autoprovisioning button, which updates autoprovisioning for the enterprise, has been removed from the Create Role Mapping and Edit Role Mapping pages. Having this button available in role mappings was causing performance problems, as users were applying autoprovisioning repeatedly and generating large volumes of provisioning requests. Instead, you’re recommended to run the Autoprovision Roles for All Users process after creating or editing role mappings and after loading person records in bulk.

Apply Autoprovisioning Button is Removed from Create Role Mapping and Edit Role Mapping Pages

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

Users who have the Application Implementation Consultant or IT Security Manager job role can run Autoprovision Roles for All Users.

New Approval Rule for Simplified User Interface Personal Information

You can now approve certain changed details in the Personal Information simplified user interface with a new approval rule, called Personal Information. The new rule enables approvals to be applied when personal information, such as name details, contacts, passports and so on are changed. The approval rule is modified using the Manage Approval Transactions for Human Capital Management task in the Setup and Maintenance work area.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Changes to Privileges for Predefined Roles

The following three topics describe the changes made to the privileges for predefined job roles.

Removal of the Import Worker Privilege from the IT Security Manager Job Role

Until now, the IT Security Manager job role has inherited the Import Worker privilege. This privilege is not appropriate for the IT Security Manager job role and is removed in this release. Only the Human Capital Management Application Administrator job role inherits the Import Worker privilege.

Authorization to Run the Send Personal Data for Multiple Users to LDAP Process

After loading person records in bulk, you’re recommended to run the Send Personal Data for Multiple Users to LDAP process to correct any differences in the person data held by HCM and Oracle Identity Management. Until now, HR Specialists could run this process. From this release, HR Specialists are no longer authorized to run the process. Only users who have the Human Capital Management Application Administrator job role can run Send Personal Data for Multiple Users to LDAP.

The following screen capture shows the process in the Search and Select dialog box in the Scheduled Processes work area. The signed-in user has the Human Capital Management Application Administrator job role.

The Process is Available to Human Capital Management Application Administrators Only

Removal of the Edit User Name Action from Workers and Line Managers

Until now, users have been able to edit their own user names by selecting the Edit User Name action on the Manage User Account page. Line managers have been able to edit the user names of their reports in the same way. Being able to edit user names is inappropriate for these users. Therefore, in this release, the Edit User Name action is removed from the Manage User Account page for workers and line managers. Edit User Name remains available to HR specialists on the Manage User Account page.

Edit User Name Remains Available to HR Specialists

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Person Management Access

The Person Management entry in the Navigator is now secured by the Manage Person Work Area functional privilege. Until this release, the Person Management entry was secured by the Search Person functional privilege. Review custom roles that access the Person Management work area to ensure that they have the Manage Person Work Area functional privilege.

The Person Management Entry in the Navigator

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

To review the role hierarchy of a custom role, you can use the Security Console. Edit the role and review functional privileges on the Functional Security Policies page. Ensure that you add the Manage Person Work Area functional privilege to any custom role that is currently accessing the Person Management work area by means of the Search Person functional privilege.

Send Pending LDAP Requests

Typically, you schedule the Send Pending LDAP Requests process to run daily. This process sends future-dated and bulk requests for user accounts and roles to Oracle Identity Management. Send Pending LDAP requests has been updated to prevent it from terminating prematurely and reporting an inaccurate status. The process now pauses until all requests are processed before completing. In addition, logging details have been improved to facilitate error diagnosis.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

User Details System Extract Report

The User Details System Extract Report is an Oracle BI Publisher report that provides details of selected user accounts. Until now, the report didn’t include pending workers. From this release, pending workers with user accounts can appear in the report.

Accessing the User Details System Extract Report in the Reports and Analytics Work Area

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Oracle Tap (Mobile)

This section describes new features that are relevant if you use Oracle Tap for HCM Mobile applications. Oracle Tap works on smart devises that have a web browser, such as smart phones and tablets.

Mobile - Language Support Enhancements

Oracle Tap mobile solutions supports the same languages available in Fusion HCM Cloud with the exception of languages that read from right to left.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Key Resources

For more information about supported mobile devices and operating systems (OS), you can see a complete list under system requirements: Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud Release 10

Mobile - Themes

Oracle Tap supports six out-of-the-box color themes that you can define within the settings area of the mobile application. You can also set the mobile logo and watermark that appears in the application by configuring this within Fusion.

Steps to Enable

To enable delivered themes in mobile, the administrator would need to go into the Fusion tools appearance area and select the appropriate company logo and watermark background image. The user can select from a list of themes in the mobile settings page that will set the theme on mobile.

Mobile - Access Worker Social Wall

Within Oracle Tap, you can start an Oracle Social Network (OSN) conversation with a worker that you have selected. This feature requires that the OSN app is installed on the device because Oracle Tap uses punch-out integration with OSN to connect.

Steps to Enable

To connect with OSN, you need to install OSN on your mobile device and setup an appropriate OSN account. If you have an active account in both Fusion and OSN, then you can use this feature.

Mobile - Worklist and Notifications

You can view and act on workflow tasks on the Notification/Approvals page on your mobile device. As a manager, you can approve or reject a task and access the details task page. The details task page is a web view of the detail task view. Actions can only be done within the list view of the Notification page.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Role Simplification

Role definitions for the security reference implementation are simplified. Many roles beneath the job level are eliminated. The privileges that are defined are assigned to job or abstract roles, either directly or as aggregate privileges (which are new to Release10). This reduces the complexity of role administration and customization. Some things to consider with the role simplification are:

Every job or abstract role that existed in Release 9 also exists in the simplified role hierarchy for Release 10. Each of these job or abstract roles authorizes the same privileges in Release 10 as it did in Release 9. Release 10 adds some new job roles. The nodes in the hierarchy between a job and its privileges are reduced and simplified.

Release 10 will include both the hierarchy you are used to and the new simplified hierarchy. On upgrade, users will be members of the old hierarchy. You can move users to the new hierarchy at your discretion. Note that new functionality will exist under the new hierarchy.

Simplified Reference Role Model

Every job or abstract role that existed in Release 9 also exists in the simplified role hierarchy for Release 10. Each of these job or abstract roles authorizes the same privileges in Release 10, as it did in Release 9. Release 10 although, adds some new job roles. The nodes in the hierarchy between a job and its privileges are reduced and simplified.

Release 10 will include both the hierarchy you are used to and the new simplified hierarchy. On upgrade, users will be members of the old hierarchy. You can move users to the new hierarchy at your discretion. Note that new functionality will exist under the new hierarchy.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

For existing customers who upgrade to Release 10, you can choose to move your users to the simplified hierarchy at your own discretion. Before beginning the move to the simplified hierarchy, please be sure to review the white papers on My Oracle Support (Doc ID: 2023523.1) to understand what is involved and how it will work.

Applications Security

Oracle Fusion Applications Security provides a single console in which security managers and security administrators can review, design, and modify roles in Oracle Fusion Applications. It enables users to visualize the relationship among the roles, and to model applications-menu and task-pane entries for any role. Users can also manage certificates and review a set of security reports.

Copy Role and Inherited Hierarchy

You may create a new role by copying an existing role, then editing the copy. You have the option of copying only the "top" role (the role itself) or the top role and its inherited roles.

If you choose to copy only the top role, your copy shares its role hierarchy with the source role. That is, the source role inherits subordinate roles, and your copy inherits the same roles. Subsequent changes to those inherited roles will affect not only the source role, but also your copy.

If you choose to copy the top role and its inherited roles, the copied top role inherits new copies of all subordinate roles. This option insulates the copied role from any changes to the original versions of the inherited roles.

Copy Options for a Role Selected

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

Enter the role name suffix to use during role copy in the Administration tab. This suffix will be used every time you copy inherited roles.

Analyze Roles by Role Category

A role belongs to a category, which describes the purpose the role shares in common with other roles. Typically a category contains a type of role configured for an application, such as "Financials — Duty Roles." You can review statistics about the categories themselves: the number of roles in each, the number of role memberships (roles belonging to other roles within the category), and the number of function and data security policies created for those roles. (Roles by Category pie chart compares the number of roles in each category with those in other categories.)

You can select a category and list the roles belonging to it. For each role, you can review its role memberships, function and data security policies, and users assigned to it.

The Security Console Analytics Page

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Aggregate Privileges

Aggregate privileges are new in this release. Each aggregate privilege combines the functional privilege for an individual task or duty with the relevant data privileges. Oracle defines aggregate privileges which cannot be customized. You can however, include them within job hierarchies that you define. When a job hierarchy uses aggregate privileges and you depict that hierarchy in the Security Console visualization, the aggregate privileges appear as distinct elements of the hierarchy.

Security Console Visualization of a Role Hierarchy with Aggregate Privileges, Which are Labeled “A”

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Generate X.509 Certificate

A digital certificate establishes public and private keys for encrypting and decrypting data that Oracle Cloud applications exchange with other applications. You can now generate certificates in the X.509 format and/or continue to generate PGP formatted certificates. You can also export saved X.509 certificates for signing by a certifying authority or for use in other certificate systems.

Steps to Enable

Generate Certificate Signing Request for X.509 Certificate

When you generate an X.509 certificate it exists initially at a self-signed state. You transform it to a trusted state by having it digitally signed by a certificate authority. The Security Console enables you to create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR), a file that you would then send to a certificate authority. You would then import the response as a trusted certificate.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

Although the Security Console creates the CSR, you are expected to follow a process established by your organization to forward the CSR to a certificate authority. This process does not apply to PGP certificates.

Import Certificates from Keystore

You can import an X.509 certificate, typically belonging to an external source with which your system is to communicate. One or more X.509 certificates may be contained within a keystore and you have the option of importing certificates from a keystore. (Alternatively, you may import a certificate file on its own.)

Matrix Manager Hierarchy

Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence has been enhanced to report on the matrix manager hierarchy.

Unsecured Assignment Manager Hierarchy

A new dimension has been added to all subject areas except Talent Review Meeting Real Time that represents the line manager hierarchy.
