Global Payroll Interface

Oracle Global Payroll Interface supports features to send personal payroll information to third-party payroll providers and then to import processed payroll data into Oracle Fusion Global HR. You can copy and modify predefined extract definitions to meet the requirements of your third-party payroll provider. Before extracting data, payroll coordinators can optionally run the Calculate Gross Earnings process to calculate periodic values to validate gross earnings calculations. If you import processed payroll data or payslips from your third-party payroll provider, the data is available for further reporting and analysis.

ADP Global Payroll Interface Enhanced to Support Person Name in Local Language

You can interface person names captured in the local language using the LocalPersonNames section in the ADP Global Payroll Interface output XML file.

LocalPersonNames Section in the Output XML File

Onboarding and Checklist Enhancements

You can now leverage user experience enhancements in the Onboarding and Checklist Tasks areas.

Export Checklist Templates

You can export the configuration of a checklist template.

Option to Export Checklist Template in the Setup Page

Modify Notification Settings

When you create a new checklist only actionable notifications will be enabled. The FYI notifications will be turned off by default.

The OTBI subject area for Checklists - Workforce Management - Checklist Real Time now includes all the new attributes added in previous enhancements. You can create OTBI reports based on these attributes.

OTBI Attributes

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Configure Questionnaire and Report Task Types in Checklists

You can now use the questionnaire and report task action types when you create a checklist.

The Questionnaire task action type enables you to create and upload a questionnaire as a task that the task performer can answer. For example, you use the questionnaire task action type to send out an exit survey, employee satisfaction survey and so on.

Configure the Questionnaire Task Action Type

View Questionnaire

The Report task action type enables you to provide the path to an existing BIP report as part of a checklist task. For example, a line manager can view the report related to  career development path of an employee.

Configure the Report Task Action Type

Use Go to Task to View the Generated Report

View the Generated Report

Steps to Enable

Before you configure these task types:

  • Use Oracle Talent Management Cloud to create the questionnaire you need to use in the checklist task.
  • Use BI Publisher to create the report that you need to use in the checklist task. Also, ensure that you provide users with the required privileges to access the BI Publisher area since the generated report will open in that area.

Enhanced Management of Work Relationships

We have improved the way you manage work relationships. You can now edit the hire date of a work relationship even when payroll results exist before the new hire date.

Edit Hire Date of Work Relationship

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Enhancements to Document Records

You can now manage your document records and document delivery preferences effectively using these enhancements:

You can use the faceted search capability to quickly search, sort, and filter document records.

Search by Name, Type, or Document Number

You no longer see the Document Records and Document Delivery Preferences sections on the Documents tab in the classic Manage Person flow since these sections are hidden by default. You need to use page composer to render the sections. The benefits of this change are:

  1. Reduces the multiple navigation paths to Manage Document Records and Document Delivery Preferences sections.
  2. Declutters the UI and reduces confusion for users between the four predefined documents of Citizenships, Passports, Drivers Licenses and Visa or Permits, versus the configurable document records feature, by not having document records on the same page as the four predefined documents.
  3. Encourages users to create document records using the correct navigation since document records created with the previous navigation were not triggering document record approval.
  4. Familiarization with the changed UI because in a future release the Document Records and Document Delivery Preferences regions will be completely removed from the Manage Person page.

Document Delivery Preferences Section Hidden by Default

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Enhanced Suggestions for Job LOV

We have made it easier for you to get more relevant job suggestions for the worker assignment with the enhanced Job List of Values (LOV). If positions are not used, then the Job LOV displays the most recently selected jobs and the next progression job (if configured to do so).

If positions are used, then the Job LOV displays the most recently selected jobs and the position's job (if the job is not synchronized from position; if synchronized, then it will be read only).

Job LOV Displays Relevant Suggestions

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

If you want to use the suggested job feature in the Job LOV and you don't use positions, you must configure the Progression Job field in the Manage Jobs page.

Control Automatic Calculation of Work Measures

We have improved user experience by controlling the automatic calculation of work measures. You can use a new attribute Auto Calculate Work Measures to control the way FTE and Headcount are populated. By default, the value of the attribute is Y. When the attribute value is Y or Null, the application automatically calculates the FTE and Headcount work measures. If you change this value to N, the application doesn’t automatically calculate the FTE and Headcount and retains the user entered value. You can reset the attribute value to Y.

The Auto Calculate Work Measures attribute column is available on the work measures table.

Work Measures Are Calculated Automatically

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

HCM Data Loader supports the loading of work measure records using the new Calculate Work Measure flag. However, the new flag will have no impact on the way FTE is calculated by HCM Data Loader. The 'Calculate Worker Full-Time Equivalent' file-level parameter remains unchanged and the application continues to calculate FTE based on the values passed in the parameter.

If you only modify the Calculate Work Measure flag with no change to FTE, the work measure record is updated.

The 'Calculate FTE and headcount automatically' check box is hidden out-of-the-box for all flows except the Change Working Hours flow.

When you select the 'Calculate FTE and headcount automatically' check box, the application derives the headcount for an assignment based on this logic:

  • Primary assignment headcount is 1
  • Nonprimary assignment headcount is 0

Oracle Recruiting Cloud Offers Displayed in Position Nodes in HCM Position Hierarchy

You can now see offers made to candidates using Oracle Recruiting Cloud (ORC) in the position nodes in the HCM Position Hierarchy. The extended offers will be included in the incumbent count and displayed in the position node along with the candidates' names.

Extended offers as of the proposed hire date and pending workers as of the proposed start date will be included.

Extended Offers Displayed in the Position Node in the HCM Position Hierarchy

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Public Document Records REST API

You can now use the Document Records REST resource to create, update, and delete document records and attachments.

Using the REST API, you can:

  • Create a document record
  • Update a document record
  • Delete a document record
  • Create a document attachment
  • Update a document attachment
  • Delete a document attachment

Steps to Enable

Review the REST service definition in the REST API guides to leverage (available from the Oracle Help Center > your apps service area of interest > REST API). If you are new to Oracle's REST services you may want to begin with the Quick Start section.

Make the feature accessible by assigning or updating privileges and/or job roles. Details are provided in the Role Information section below.

Role Information

The following table shows the aggregate privileges that support features in this update and the predefined roles that inherit them.

Workers REST API

You can use the Workers REST API to create workers and manage person and employment information of a worker in Oracle HCM Cloud. For example, you can create different types of workers such as employees, contingent workers, and pending workers. You can also view and manage person and employment information such as emails, phones, assignments, work relationships, and so on.

The Workers REST API also supports custom methods to simplify a multi-step process or to perform actions that cannot be performed directly using the standard HTTP methods. For example, you can use custom methods to perform specific actions on the worker such as termination, global transfer, temporary assignment, and so on.

Steps to Enable

Review the REST service definition in the REST API guides, available from the Oracle Help Center > your apps service area of interest > REST API. If you're new to Oracle's REST services you may want to begin with the Quick Start section.

Key Resources

For more information about the Workers API, see the REST API for Oracle HCM Cloud guide on the Oracle Help Center.

Role Information

To facilitate the management of related information, all the function security privileges and data security policies required to secure the workers REST API are delivered through predefined duty roles. You can also define your own custom roles and grant appropriate duty roles as per the standard security guidelines.

This table shows the predefined duty roles, the job roles they are assigned to, and the supported methods.

Role Information

The Position Details quick action page is secured by the following aggregate privilege.

Function Security Privilege Name Aggregate Security Privilege Code
View Positions

ORA_PER_POSITION_VIEW_DUTY

This privilege is granted to the predefined Line Manager job role. Line managers (if you are just using the predefined job role) can now automatically search for positions and view position details in view only mode for those positions that their data security policy allows them to see. Using this privilege, enables line managers to not only access and view position details from the My Team page, but also gives them access to the Position Details quick action.

HR Specialists can view and access this page with the existing aggregate privilege Maintain Positions (ORA_PER_POSITION MAINTENANCE_DUTY) 

See the Release 13 Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud Security Upgrade Guide on My Oracle Support (Document ID 2023523.1) for instructions on implementing new features in existing roles.

Position Management: Enhancements to the Number of Incumbents Validation

The number of incumbents validation is improved to restrict the number of incumbents in a position, based on the position's FTE and headcount.

The validation also considers extended offers made to candidates as of the proposed hire date and pending workers as of the proposed start date. This validation is used on all person types except non-workers.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Areas of Responsibility Redesigned

You can now increase user satisfaction with the Areas of Responsibility (AoR) pages that now have the same look and feel on desktop and mobile devices. Significant changes include the ability to:

Use Faceted Search

  • Filter search results by a number of responsibility attribute values: The attributes that are used to search are Responsibility Name, Responsibility Type, Legal Employer, Business Unit, Department, Location, Job, and Position.
  • Save frequently used searches: Out-of-the-box, Saved Search displays active responsibilities for the worker, however you can update the filtering if you want to also display inactive responsibilities, or limit to a particular responsibility type.

Areas of Responsibility Responsive Page

Search by Different Attributes

Reassign or Delete Responsibilities

Reassign one or more responsibilities, or delete responsibilities using the actions on the Assigned Areas of Responsibility page. Responsibilities that are pending approval can't be reassigned or deleted until the approval is complete. For a responsibility that is pending approval, a banner appears at the top of the page for you to review the current status.

Reassign or Delete Actions Available

Access Areas of Responsibility Using Quick Action and Deep Link

Navigate to Areas of Responsibility using the quick action available in My Client Groups. Alternatively, you can access Areas of Responsibility from a third-party system using Tools > Deep Link.

Use BIP Notifications

Notify users of new or changed assignments using BIP approval notifications.

Access to View-Only Version of UI

Provide users access to a view-only version of the UI even if they don't have access to Areas of Responsibility but their role has functional access privilege.

Guide Users to Provide the Correct Start Date

Enable users to provide the correct AoR date and prevent them from providing an AoR start data that is prior to the person's assignment start date. A new error message is introduced to convey this. It is no longer possible to enter the start date prior to the person's assignment start date in the Create Areas of Responsibility responsive UI.

Steps to Enable

In order to enable the new Areas of Responsibility pages, you must enable the following profile option and have enabled the HCM_RESPONSIVE_PAGES_ENABLED profile option. If you have not enabled the HCM_RESPONSIVE_PAGES_ENABLED profile option, please see the HCM Responsive User Experience Setup Information (Document ID 2399671.1)

Make the feature accessible by assigning or updating privileges and/or job roles. Details are provided in the Role Information section below.

Tips And Considerations

Personalization

With the minimalist out-of-the-box design approach, you may decide you need to personalize the Areas of Responsibility UIs to hide or show additional fields. If this is the case, updates must be made using Page Composer. There is no current HCM Design Studio support.

Note for Large Implementations

The following responsibility scope attributes don't have client-side REST LoVs yet: 

  1. Payroll Statutory Unit
  2. Tax Reporting Unit
  3. Top node (applies to Organization, Position and Department top node selection)
  4. Recruiting Location Hierarchy
  5. Recruiting Org Hierarchy

These LoVs look and behave differently from some of the other scope attributes. If your implementation has over 500 rows in any of these LoVs, we recommend that you don't enable the AoR responsive profile option in Update 19.07/19C, until client-side REST LoVs are available for these scope attributes. 

Key Resources

Role Information

The following table shows the aggregate privileges that support features in this update and the predefined roles that inherit them.

Aggregate Privilege

Job Role

Manage Areas of Responsibility by Person

Human Resource Specialist

View Areas of Responsibility by Person

Human Resource Analyst

The Human Resource Specialist job role has access to the quick action and areas of responsibilities with the existing Manage Areas of Responsibility by Person aggregate privilege. Likewise, view-only access is available with the existing View Areas of Responsibility by Person aggregate privilege. While the end-user task name has changed, the aggregate privilege names remain the same.

If you're using the predefined IT Security Manager job role, then no action is necessary. If you're using a custom version of the IT Security Manager job role, then you must add the new privilege to your custom role to manage HCM exclusion rules. For information about adding new roles and privileges to custom roles, see the Release 13 Security Upgrade Guide on My Oracle Support (Document ID 2023523.1)

Redesigned Termination and Resignation Pages

We have redesigned and made it easier for you to use these flows:

  • View Termination
  • Correct Termination

  • Withdraw Resignation (new page)

You can now run reports for the new Reverse Termination and Withdraw Resignation flows and use approvals for the Correct Termination, Reverse Termination, and Withdraw Resignation flows.

New Page for Reverse Termination

New Page for Withdraw Resignation

Steps to Enable

In order to enable the new pages, you must enable the following profile option and have enabled the HCM_RESPONSIVE_PAGES_ENABLED profile option.

Tips And Considerations

You need to configure separate approvals for the Correct Termination and Reverse Termination flows. If you don't configure separate approvals, then these flows use shared approvals:

  • The Correct Termination and Reverse Termination flows will use the same approval as the Termination flow.
  • The Withdraw Resignation flow will use the same approval as the Submit Resignation flow.

The Reverse Termination and Withdraw Resignation flows can share the same approvals.

Deep Links for Share Data Access and Share Personal Info

Use the new deep links to easily and directly navigate to the Share Data Access and Share Personal Info pages. Deep links can be embedded in your intranet, a custom or third-party application, or in a document so employees can quickly access their HCM information or initiate transactions in HCM Cloud.

Deep Links

Both tasks are available under quick actions for Me, My Team, and My Client Groups, so you will see three deep links for each task. The deep links for the Quick Actions on the Me tab are EMP_SHARE_DATA_ACCESS and EMP_SHARE_PERSONAL_INFO. The deep links for the Quick Actions on the My Team tab are MGR_SHARE_DATA_ACCESS and MGR_SHARE_PERSONAL_INFO. The deep links for the Quick Actions on the My Client Groups tab are HR_SHARE_DATA_ACCESS and HR_SHARE_PERSONAL_INFO.

Steps to Enable

To access the new deep links:

  1. Open the main menu.
  2. Go to Tools > Deep links.
  3. Copy the URL for a deep link.
  4. Paste the URL into the desired location.

Tips And Considerations

Deep links are only available for the new mobile responsive tasks. There are no deep links for the classic, non-responsive Information Sharing task.

New Security Subject Area

We have made it easier for you to report on the security setup in the cloud application by adding a new security subject area. This new subject area, Security - Roles & Privileges Real Time, is designed to make reporting of Roles, Role Objects, and Role Users easier for OTBI users. Users can create and run ad-hoc security reports for needed security review and audit purposes. The subject area has details related to roles, inherited roles, inherited-by roles, data security policies, function security policies, and the users set up in the application.

The subject area also metrics including number of roles, number of users, and so on that can be used to understand the quantity of security built in the organization apart from the actual security details.

These new dashboards are seeded in the catalog to report on all the roles and details.

  • Security dashboard
  • Role dashboard

The Security Dashboard gives an overview of the roles and role categories, for example: abstract, hcm, erp, and their specific counts.

Details of the roles include code, name, description, number, and the details of users who have been assigned the role, the data security policies that make up the role, the functional security policies, and also the details of all the roles that have been inherited by roles.

The dashboard has pages that contain details of various objects related to security.

  • Role Category Overview: Provides the list of role categories and their counts. On drill down from the count, it provides the list of roles under the specific category.  

  • Role Overview: This page provides the overview of a role that is chosen from the prompt. There are a few performance tiles related to the specific role which provides the count of roles assigned directly to this role, the count of roles inherited through the roles assigned to them, the count of directly assigned functional and data security policies, and the number of users that have been assigned this role. On drill down from these counts, the cursor navigates to another dashboard named ‘Roles Dashboard’ that is a detailed dashboard which has details of various security objects including the directly assigned roles, functional security policies, data security policies, and so on.

  • Function Security Policy Information: This page provides a summary and details of the function security policy selected from the drop down list. The details include the privilege name, the roles to which this function security policy is assigned, and the resource details such as type, action, name, description, and so on.

  • Data Security Policy Information: This page provides a summary and details of the data security policy (DSP) selected from the drop down list. The details include the roles to which this policy is assigned. For each of the roles to which this DSP is assigned, it also provides the details of the security associated with the specific role.

  • User Role List: This page provides a summary and details of all the roles assigned to the chosen user.

The Role Dashboard provides details of the artefacts assigned to the role including data security policies, functional security policies, directly assigned roles and inherited roles, the users that have been assigned the role and the inherited role hierarchy details. These details are available in multiple tabs of the dashboard.

Role Overview: This page displays the counts of each of the artefacts that are related to role chosen in the prompt.

Directly Assigned Data Security Policies: This page displays the data security policy details that are assigned directly to the role chosen in the prompt.

Directly Assigned Function Security Policies: This page displays the function security policy details that are assigned directly to the role chosen in the prompt.

Role Assigned to Users: This page displays the users that have been assigned the role chosen in the prompt.

Directly Assigned Roles: This page displays the roles that have been assigned directly to the role chosen in the prompt.

Inherited Role List: This page displays the roles that have been inherited by the role chosen in the prompt.

Inherited Role Hierarchy: This page displays the hierarchy of the inherited roles by the role chosen in the prompt.

Steps to Enable

Leverage new subject area(s) by adding to existing reports or using in new reports. For details about creating and editing reports, see the Creating and Administering Analytics and Reports book (available from the Oracle Help Center > your apps service area of interest > Books > Administration).

Make the feature accessible by assigning or updating privileges and/or job roles. Details are provided in the Role Information section below.
