Internal Job History in People Profile — Supported in People Profile from 2H 2020.

We all know that in Employee Profile (EP) there was a standard background portlet for Internal Job History which used Employee Central Data from Job Information & showed in the Employee Profile Portlet but after the introduction of People Profile (PP3) this standard background portlet was not supported anymore. SAP suggested some workaround for that as per KBA 2381592 (this KBA has been removed now). There were many organizations who were using this “Internal Job History” portlet voted for the influence request to incorporate it in People Profile also.

In 2H 2020 release SAP has incorporated similar functionality in People Profile & in this blog we are going to discuss the relevant configuration steps for this newly incorporated functionality in People Profile.

Configuration Steps:

Step1: RBP Permission set up: Below mentioned permissions are required for the configuration.

Manage Employee Files:

Internal Job History View:

Job History View:

Employee Widgets Access:

Rule Configuration access:

Step2: Create a Business Rule with Scenario “Internal Job History” – In the rule we can configure what event reasons will show in the Internal Job History Portlet in People Profile. Really flexible!!!!

Rule Scenario:

Sample Business Rule: In the sample rule we are considering 5 event reasons.

Step3: Configure People Profile: In the People Profile configuration add a new block for Internal Job History. Here we can add which fields will be available in the portlet. Also we need to assign the rule (created in step2) in that people profile block configuration. Sample configuration below.


** Make Sure latest EC Event Reason Picklist is updated in the system.

All Set. Let’s see the output.


*** Kindly Note :The portlet is not designed to be a replacement for Job History, but a summary view.

      thanks for the great my opinion the feature has a huge downside. It works only if the data slices – e.g. as you have defined it by specific event reason – is top of stack for that day. As Job Info might have multiple data sets a day you might have the case that an event reason relevant for internal job history was raised one day, but then there is also a data change or update through position or whatever at the same day. Then the relevant slice is not shown anymore. I know it is not meant to be a duplication of job info. But having job info as base how can it be that sequence number is not respected? So overall you might not trust that portlet at all.

      Yes this is the expected behavior as of release 2H 2020. This will definitely add value to those customers who are not using/allowing  multiple changes in Job information on a single day.

      Relevant KBA - .

      Appreciate this information! I assumed we could report on the "internal job history" block, but when trying to pull a canvas or adhoc report, it comes back blank. Any insight?
