A very simple and quick example of how to use a new PA InfoType with HCM Process and Forms. I will start by creating a new infotype. Remember, that new infotypes are now created in DeCoupled fashion. Yeah…
Use Transaction PM01 and create an InfoType:
Select “Generate Objects”:
Add some fields to your InfoType. Save and Activate. The following message appears:
For this example, we will take the standard Check Class as is. However, you can choose to code the check class with your own specific logic.
Fill out the InfoType properties:
Now it’s time to create a HCM Form Process and Scenario (something similar to below)
Add the new infotype to the SAP_PA Backend Services:
Add the two fields to your form scenario fields:
These fields now need mapping to the SAP_PA Backend Service as follows:
For this simple test, we are not using Workflow, so tell the process that NO_WORKFLOW is used:
Now test the process:
Perform a “Check” and the following “good” message should appear:
Perform a “Send” and the following “good” messages should appear:
And that’s it! The data has been changed on the employee’s record. All you need to do now is create an Adobe form for the user to interact with.
