One of the Key for Manager Self Service transactions is setting up of Direct Reports for Manager.
For every MSS Transaction, The First page is always Direct Reports Listing Page. Generally this list is determined by Organizational Hierarchy Setup. (For Eg: Departmental Hierarchy or Supervisor driven Hierarchy). If we correlate with PeopleSoft Terminology, I would say this will come under any of these access types
- By Supervisor Id
- By Reports To Position
- By Department Manager Id
- By Department Security Tree
- By Part Position Management Supervisor
- By Part Position Management Department Manager ID
- By Group Id
If we take access type“By Reports To Position”, it means Organizational Hierarchy is determined by the Employee’s Reporting Position Number.
In PeopleSoft, this Direct Reports Listing is constructed by 2 types of Setups
Direct Reports Setup
Configure Direct Reports UI
Note: Configure Direct Reports UI is the new feature provided in PeopleSoft HCM 8.9 Version onwards.
In order to verify the above mentioned setups, PeopleSoft itself provided options to validate the setups. This is done by using Invoke Direct Reports API – This is used to view the Direct Reports of the Manager
Invoke Direct Reports UI API – This is used to view the MSS Transaction pages for a particular MSS Component
Note: Navigation for these setups:
