You will be using the Manage Workforce app to perform the first tasks of IAM on SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition:
- Create workforce users
- Assign business Users
The Manage Workforce app is used to create and update worker information for both employees and contingent workers, including work agreements and changing employment situations. This app enables you to upload/edit employee information independent of an HR system of record.
During an implementation project, the Manage Workforce app is used to create business users for the project team members in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud starter system. This app is also used to create the initial users in the development, test, and production systems during the implementation project.
When creating the associated business user, the admin is switched from the Manage Workforce app to the Maintain Business User app. When going back from the Maintain Business User app to the Manage Workforce app, the business user will be automatically assigned to the worker.
Once integrated with a customers HR system (for example, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central), the Manage Workforce app becomes read-only to ensure that there is only one HR data source. Changes to users must be done directly in the HR system of record after the integration is activated.
Create Workforce User and Business User
In the exercise below you will create a business user with a Workforce ID.
You have now learned how the Manage Workforce app can be used and learned about the difference between a workforce user and a business user.
You should now be able to create a workforce ID and link it to a business user.
