Configuration supporting project staffing in SAP S/4HANA Cloud is contained in the Unit 2 - Understanding Customer Project Management.
Of particular relevance is configuration ID103584, Maintain Settings for Planning, to decide the resource management method to use in the implementation.
If external staffing is not selected, SAP S/4HANA Cloud resource management is used. If it is selected, cloud for projects resource management is the default application instead.
This setting is irreversible.
Employee master data and employee qualifications are required in SAP S/4HANA to complete the project staffing.
Information about resources and their availability must be available per day for all relevant resources. If the integration with SuccessFactors Employee Central (SF EC) is in place, resource data, such as work schedule, holiday calendar, and time profile is created in SF EC during the hiring process. If the integration with SF EC has not been set up, you can use the API Manage Workforce Availability (
API_MANAGE_WF_AVAILABILITY) to maintain resource data.
