As valuable as the Business Configuration UI is to configure HRIS elements for Succession and Country Specific Succession Data Models, the use of XML still has some advantages over BCUI. These include:
- Using XML makes it easier to make simultaneous changes to a variety of global and country-specific fields, while BCUI will often get an error
- Back-up versioning is available for every data model upload, while changes in BCUI cannot be undone
Learn to configure the XML attributes in the interaction.
Succession Data Model XML
Any newly enabled fields in the data models or BCUI must be permissioned using Role Based Permissions for any role to access it. In the sample configuration for ACE, the field Preferred Name has permission at all levels: View Current, History, Edit/Insert, Correct, and Delete.
Exporting the Succession Data Model in the Admin Center
Before you start with any configuration using the Succession Data Model XML, be sure to download the latest XML version. Files can be downloaded directly from the Admin Center. All previous versions can be exported directly from the Export Succession Data Model tool. You can restore the data model to a specific version from the list. The list of versions only stores up to 100 previous versions.
