Custom Card using deep links on New Home Page

Introduction

As an SAP EC consultant, I came across a new requirement from the customer asking for a custom card to change the address from the new homepage. This custom card allows the employees to add/edit their address from the new homepage

 

Technical Requirement

A custom card for an address change from the New home page under organizational updates needs to be created using deep links. This custom card leads the employee to the address portlet on their employee profile.

 

Configuration

Using the deep link.

To use a deep link, add it to the base URL of your SuccessFactors instance.

  1. Determine the base URL used in your system. The base URL can vary slightly by the customer and by region but always ends in “successfactors.com.”

For example, if the main SuccessFactors login page is:

https://performancemanager4.successfactors.com/login#/companyEntry

Then the base URL would be

https://performancemanager4.successfactors.com  

2. Insert the deep link immediately following “successfactors.com,” starting with a slash.

For example, to add a deep link to the logged-in user’s people profile, you would use

https://performancemanager4.successfactors.com/sf/liveprofile

3. Add a question mark (?) separator to the end of the deep link path, followed by a supported                  URL parameter, as a name-value pair.

https://performancemanager4.successfactors.com/sf/liveprofile?

4. Go to Configure People Profile. Under personal information and address information, select                 the block Id to attach it to the URL.

6. The same Link is added under the address portlet in configure people profile
