HCM COMMON FEATURES


The following HCM common features include enhancements for Release 10:

HCM Data Loader


HCM RESTful Services and ATOM Feeds
Global Human Resources
Payroll Common Features

HCM DATA LOADER


HCM Data Loader delivers a flexible and comprehensive bulk data loading solution for business objects
across multiple Human Capital Management products. It can be used for data migration, ongoing
inbound interfaces, and one-off bulk updates. It supports the bulk load of your configured descriptive
and extensible flexfield data, translation data, tree hierarchies, person images, and Document of Record
attachments.

FLEXIBLE PIPE-DELIMITED FILE FORMAT


You can now simplify your inbound integrations and only include the business object components and
attributes relevant to your use case. This is available, whether it is full date-effective history for data
migration, or incremental changes for data maintenance. You can supply multiple business objectspecific files in one compressed zip file and process them together. HCM Data Loader understands the
order in which the business-object data must be loaded to ensure referenced data will be loaded first.
SECURE DATA TRANSFER
You can now optionally deliver encrypted compressed zip files to Oracles Web Center Content Server,
secured by a specific HCM Data Loader account. The compressed zip file is then streamed from the Web
Center Content Server and decrypted during import into stage tables before the multi-threaded process
loads valid objects into HCM. Your compressed zip file is then deleted from the Web Center Content
Server as soon as HCM Data Loader has finished streaming the file or you can choose to retain your
source files.
AUTOMATED OR USER MANAGED PROCESSING
You can now automate inbound interfaces using the Web Center Content and HCM Data Loader web
services. In addition you can also control the import and loading processes using the new Import and
Load Data user interface.

STATUS AND ERROR REPORTING


You can now review the progress of your files through the user interface, with comprehensive status
and record count information. You will be able to:

Review message summaries and manage errors by reviewing the details of failed records.
Monitor the results of your data load using the new HCM Extract output, which provides
machine readable status and error information.
Diagnose complex errors using the new Data Set Status available from the Diagnostic
framework.

FLEXIBLE KEY SUPPORT


With this release four key types are supported. You can create new objects specifying your source
system identifier and continue to maintain and reference that data in HCM using your source key.
Alternatively you can supply the user key information, such as, Organization Name, Person Number,
Absence Type, or you can use Oracle Fusions internal surrogate ID and Globally Unique ID (GUID).

HCM RESTFUL SERVICES AND ATOM FEEDS


Oracle Fusion HCM delivers lightweight Representational State Transfer (RESTful) APIs and associated
Atom feeds to support integration requirements. Oracle initially will support RESTful services and Atom
feeds for the Employee and Work Structure resources, using integration technology that is standardsbased, widely supported, and well understood in the community.

HCM RESTFUL SERVICES


You can now accelerate your integration projects by using the simplified approach of web services
defined as RESTful APIs. These APIs support Employee and Work Structure resources and their child
resources, enabling easy integration into the new and existing business process flows.
HCM ATOM FEEDS
The delivered Atom feeds for the Employee and Work Structure resources enable integrating
applications to subscribe to key events such as: new hire, termination, and changes to work
assignments. Applications consuming these feeds can act on such events by initiating business flows
such as: on-boarding, enrolling employees in career-based training, and managing access to company
resources. Each feed entry contains a link to the originating resource, enabling fetching of detailed data.

GLOBAL HUMAN RESOURCES


Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources enables your organization to plan, manage and optimize all
workforce segments using flexible and extensible best practices to realize extraordinary gains while
ensuring compliance and increasing total workforce engagement.

COUNTRY - LEVEL ADDRESS RULE


You can now control the address style and address validation for the country or territory you are
implementing. You can set values depending on the selected country extension. You can use the
Manage Features by Country or Territory setup task to control the address style and the level of address
validation for the countries or territories configured for Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources. The
address style selected will be displayed on the various pages where an address can be managed, such as
the new hire, manage person and manage locations. The values you can set depend on the combination
of the country or territory and the selected country extension.

PAYROLL COMMON FEATURES


This section describes new features that are relevant if you use features such as elements, formulas,
payroll definitions, and database items, even if you don't use Global Payroll.

ENHANCED ELEMENT TEMPLATE FOR ABSENCES


You can now simplify your integration between Global Payroll and Absences by creating your absence
elements, calculation components, balances, and formulas through the absence element template. Your
answers in the element template will control which of the features the template will generate. You can
also associate your absence element to an absence plan to facilitate the transfer of absence information
to a person's payroll record. After processing the absence in payroll, you can view a persons absence
accrual balance, absence payments, and deductions on their statement of earnings and payslip.
ENHANCED ELEMENT TEMPLATE FOR TIME CARDS
You can simplify your integration between your time providers and your payroll application by creating
your earning elements, calculation components, balances, and formulas through the new time card
element template. Answers to the element template questions will control which of these features the
template generates. The template eliminates the need to run the Create Time Card Calculation
Components process. This feature only applies to user-defined legislations and predefined country
9

extensions that have enabled the feature in this release. Customers in other countries should continue
to create time entry elements using the Standard template and use the Create Time Card Calculation
Components process to generate the additional objects required for calculation cards.
SIMPLIFIED BANK ACCOUNT PAGE
You can simplify the entry of bank account details for personal payment methods by choosing to use the
new bank account page component. Use the Existing Banks and Branches profile option to choose
between preloading bank details for your country and enabling users to enter their bank details.
SUPPORT FOR BI REPORT SUBMISSION IN PAYROLL FLOWS
You can streamline your end-to-end payroll cycle by including Business Intelligence Publisher reports in
payroll flow patterns. To take advantage of these you will need to add tasks to your existing userdefined payroll flow patterns or to newly-created patterns.
QUICK REPORT, PROCESS AND FLOW SUBMISSION
You can accelerate the submission of your HCM Extract reports, payroll processes and flows using the
new quick submit option.

ROLE SIMPLIFICATION
We have simplified the role definitions for the security reference implementation. We have eased the
complexity of role administration and customization. The new model:

Only has a role beneath the level of a Job, where the cluster of privileges is shared by more
than one Job
Only has a role where there is a cluster of at least five privileges
Has a grouping of privileges at the level of the Job

SIMPLIFIED ROLE HIERARCHY


Take advantage of simplified role definitions in the security reference implementation. The simplified
roles reduce the complexity of role administration. Every job or abstract role that existed in Release 9
also exists in the simplified hierarchy for Release 10, and each authorizes the same privileges. Beneath
that level, however, many roles are eliminated, and the privileges they defined are assigned to a job or
10

abstract roles either directly or as aggregate privileges. See information on the new aggregate privileges
under Application Security below.
APPLICATIONS SECURITY
Oracle Fusion Applications Security provides a single console in which security managers and security
administrators can review, design, and modify roles in Oracle Fusion Applications. It enables users to
model applications-menu and task-pane entries for any role. Users can also manage certificates and
review a set of security reports.

COPY ROLE AND INHERITED HIERARCHY


You can now search for a reference role and copy either that role or that role and its inherited roles. If
you copy the inherited roles, you will be copying their function and data security policies.
ANALYZE ROLES BY ROLE CATEGORY
You can now review and drill into roles and review count of role memberships, function security
policies, data security policies, and user memberships by role category.
AGGREGATE PRIVILEGES
You can now view Aggregate privileges in the security console as a separate facet. An Aggregate
privilege combines the function security policy with the relevant data security policies that cannot be
separated. The security console will not allow you to include only the function security policy or the data
security policy from an aggregate privilege. All aggregate privileges are predefined and can be assigned
to any role.
GENERATE X.509 CERTIFICATE
You can now generate X.509 format digital certificates. You can send these certificates to a certifying
authority for certification and import the signed certificate as a trusted certificate.
GENERATE CERTIFICATE SIGNING REQUEST FOR X.509 CERTIFICATE
You can now search for X.509 certificates and generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for that
certificate. You can send these certificates to a certifying authority for certification and import the
signed certificate as a trusted certificate.

11

IMPORT CERTIFICATES FROM KEYSTORE


You can now import a certificate contained within an external keystore.
PRIVILEGE DISCOVERER REPORT
You can generate a report that lists every secured action a user is authorized to within a work area.
USER ROLE MEMBERSHIP REPORT
You can now generate a report that lists each user's job roles.

ABSENCE MANAGEMENT
Oracle Fusion Absence Management is a configurable and flexible global solution that enables
organizations to manage absences of their workforce. The framework provides ability to define both
complex and diverse absence plans. It integrates with the Oracle Fusion Global Payroll and Oracle Fusion
Time and Labor products and provides dedicated work areas for the roles of Administrator and
Employees. Simplified user interface is provided for employees absence data entry.

AUDIT FRAMEWORK INCLUDES ABSENCE RECORD DATA


Absence records are now included in the audit framework. You can monitor changes to absence record
data using the standard auditing tools.
HCM EXTRACT INCLUDES ABSENCE RECORD DATA AND ACCRUAL BALANCES
You can now integrate absence and entitlement information with third-party service providers and
payrolls using Human Capital Management (HCM) Extract. HCM Extract can now include absence
records, use of entitlements, and accrual plan balances.
APPROVAL FRAMEWORK ENHANCEMENTS
You can now configure approvals for absence records using attributes of the absence record, the plans
and entitlements, and attributes of your organization and employment structures. As part of an
initiative to expand the capabilities for approval business rules, an optional, configurable field on
absence transactions is added. This allows more flexibility in how approvals are routed within your
12

organization. Other new fields in the approval payload enable more powerful configuration of approval
based actions. Two new delivered functions enable you to check a workers manager and route
approvals to approvers who are not in the standard approver list, such as the CEO.

ASSIGNMENT HOURS AS WORK SCHEDULE OPTION


You can now configure working hours on a workers assignment as a work week. Use this configuration
as a work schedule for absence evaluation rather than an assigned work schedule to streamline
repeating work week schedules.
SCHEDULE HALF DAYS FOR ABSENCES MEASURED IN CALENDAR DAYS
You can now configure absence types that are measured in calendar days to allow entry of half day
leave.
OVERRIDE PAYMENT PERCENTAGES FOR CALCULATED ENTITLEMENTS
You can now allow Human Resources Specialists to easily handle exception cases when processing
employee leave transactions. The Human Resources Specialists can now override the payment
percentages for calculated qualified entitlements. Overrides can be monitored through audit
functionality.
ABSENCE RECORDS FOR CONTINGENT WORKERS
You can now improve work schedule planning by tracking availability and absences for contingent
workers.
ATTACHMENTS FOR ABSENCE RECORDS
We have streamlined attachments to absence records for Line Managers, Human Resource Specialists,
and Workers. Attachments now include files and links. This functionality replaces Document of Record
processing for absence records in earlier releases.

BENEFITS
Oracle Fusion Benefits is a complete, configurable and flexible global solution that enables organizations
to successfully evolve and adapt to the unique needs of their workforce. The solution enables setup of
13

traditional 'one-size fits all' plans to highly complex plans that selectively target different workforce
segments with different benefit packages. Self-service capabilities present the user with an out of the
box intuitive guided enrollment process with contextual information and embedded analytics.

RATE START DATE RULE


You can now simplify your plan configuration with the ability to control the rate start date based on the
date of the first pay check on or after the enrollment start date without using a rate periodization
formula. Use the new Pay Period Start, Before First Check, on or After Coverage Start rule for plans with
waiting periods or flexible spending accounts, for biweekly, weekly, or semi-monthly payroll
participants. For example, your enterprise enforces a waiting period of 30 days for enrolling new hires
on biweekly payrolls into a flexible spending plan. You want the flexible spending account rate to start
on the first day of the pay period that precedes the date of the first pay check on or after the enrollment
start date. You hire a worker on November 1, 2014. The worker makes elections on November 12, 2014.
In this case, the enrollment start date is December 1, 2014. The first check date after the enrollment
start date is December 13, 2014. If you use this date rule, the rate starts November 30, 2014, which is
the start of the pay period, in time for the next check date on December 13, 2014.
EXTRACTING BENEFITS DATA USING HCM EXTRACTS
You can now take advantage of increased flexibility to extract enrollment data. The delivered Benefits
extract will produce an extract in a fixed HR-XML standard, which you can send to carriers directly or
through a partner service for further transformation and onward transmission. You can also create your
own extracts with your own layouts using HCM Extracts utilizing the available Benefits database items.
BENEFITS FORMULA EVALUATION
You can now streamline the testing of your formulas by checking if your formula works as expected for a
sample participant without any impact on existing data. Previously, a full-scale plan configuration was
required before you could associate your formula with an appropriate object. Also, you had to use the
participation evaluation process and enrollments to test the formula. Now you can check to see if your
formula works as expected before you complete your plan configuration, reducing errors during
implementation.
CONTINUING BENEFITS TYPE
You can now report to benefits carriers with ease when enrollments of a participant or dependent end.
Some life events, such as termination, end the enrollment of compensation objects for participants or
their dependents. When you define a life event, you can notify carriers about the existence of end-

14

dated offerings and any associated dependents. You can comply with any reporting requirement
associated with the continuation of benefits coverage to its next phase.
CLOSE ENROLLMENT PROCESS RULE
You can now take greater control over life events. Use the new Close Enrollment rule to control which
life events must close or remain in the Started Status when you run the Close Enrollment process. You
can configure the process to either close life events irrespective of their enrollment period end date or
to close the events only if the enrollment period end date is met.

COMPENSATION AND TOTAL COMPENSATION STATEMENT


Oracle Fusion Compensation enables your organization to plan, allocate, and communicate
compensation using the most complete solution in the market. Make better business decisions using
embedded analytics and a total compensation view of workers, regardless of geographic location or pay
package components.

WORKFORCE COMPENSATION SUPPORTS MATRIX STRUCTURES


You can now create up to three hierarchies for a single compensation plan to give multiple managers
access to the same workers. There is a new task available in plan setup called Configure Hierarchies. You
can configure the primary hierarchy, a secondary hierarchy, and a review hierarchy. The source of these
hierarchies can be the primary line manager hierarchy, another manager hierarchy, a formula, a
position, or a department tree. Budgeting, modeling and approvals remain with the primary hierarchy.
The secondary and the review hierarchy enable other users to view compensation information for
workers available to them, propose allocations, and save those allocations. The primary worksheet
manager can either accept or overwrite the proposals. Global organizations can create a country based
hierarchy that enables country leaders to manage the budget, and a secondary hierarchy that allows
line managers to manage the compensation for their organization. You can also give a dotted line
manager access to a workers compensation.
HIDE INELIGIBLE WORKERS FROM WORKFORCE COMPENSATION WORKSHEET
When workers are made ineligible during the compensation cycle, you can now remove them from the
worksheet. There is a new configuration option on the Configure Eligibility task of plan setup that

15

enables you hide or display ineligible workers, whether they are found ineligible by the start process,
refresh process, or manually made ineligible.
PREVENT WORKSHEET SUBMISSION USING NEW ALERT TYPE
You can now configure a custom alert using a new alert type called Error Preventing Submit. Managers
can plan and save their worksheets even if this alert is triggered. However, they must resolve the alert
before they can submit their worksheets for approval.
IMPORT DATA IN EXTERNAL DATA TABLES
A new task is available from the Compensation work area called Manage External Data that allows you
to easily import data from a third party using Oracle ADF Desktop Integration. You can create different
record types to identify the source or purpose of the data by configuring the lookup type
CMP_EXTERNAL_DATA_RECORD_TYPE. From the Manage External Data page, you can open the
spreadsheet template to populate your data and then import the data into the application. You can then
select the record type and column name to use it as a default value in a workforce compensation
worksheet column or as a compensation item in a total compensation statement.
MIGRATE TOTAL COMPENSATION STATEMENT USING FUNCTIONAL SETUP MANAGER
Services are available to support the migration of the total compensation statement definitions and all
categories and items between database instances.
ENHANCED SALARY AND INDIVIDUAL COMPENSATION APPROVAL NOTIFICATIONS
You can now configure salary and individual compensation approvals using the Manage Approval
Transactions for Human Capital Management task available from Functional Setup Manager. This page
offers a simplified configuration and edits for approval rules. You can still configure salary and individual
compensation approvals from the BPM Worklist. You can also add comments and attachments to salary
and individual compensation approval notifications to store justifications or other information related to
the awards. Comments and attachments are available to all approvers.

COMPETITIONS
Competitions help managers engage their employees by providing an easy to use application to run
competitions across their teams. Teams members competing with one another can easily see how they
are doing real-time by viewing the competition leader board. Since competitions can be run on an
16

individual or team basis, you get the added benefit of helping foster greater team building while
focusing on business outcomes.

MY COMPETITIONS
My Competitions shows you all the competitions you are participating in, whether you are the
competition owner or participant. You can quickly see the latest status of any competition from the
competition cards, which show you the vital information such as the competition start date, end date,
and your rank in the competition. Additional summary information such as number of participants can
be found on the backs of the cards.
COMPETITION LEADER BOARD
The Competition Leader Board gives you a single place to see how you and other competitors are doing
in the competition. The leader board also lets you drill into score details and add new scores.
QUICK AND EASY COMPETITION CREATION
Competition creation is now made quick and simple. Managers have a four-step wizard to walk them
through creating a completion by providing start & end dates, inviting participants, defining how you get
points, and what the awards are.
COMPETITION DETAILS
Both Competitors and Competition Owners can now easily access all competition details from a tab on
the Leader board. Owners have the added ability to edit competition details as needed. Owners can
even add new teams and users to the competition from this page, without going through the
competition creation wizard.

existing Working Hours field on the Hire, Manage Employment, and Create Work Relationship pages.
Additionally, the Assignment Hours Details area is displayed in a separate region on the Change Working
Hours transaction.
POSITION MANAGEMENT ENHANCEMENTS: DEFAULTING OF ADDITIONAL ATTRIBUTES FROM
THE POSITION
You can now streamline your employment processes by defaulting additional attributes from the
position to the assignment. There are three attributes that can be defaulted from the position: Full Time
or Part Time, Regular or Temporary, and Manager. These attributes are defaulted during the new hire
process. They have also been added to the dialog that is shown when changing the position in the
assignment. Full Time or Part Time and Regular or Temporary are the new attributes that help in
capturing distinct information about the assignment.
POSITION MANAGEMENT ENHANCEMENTS: POSITION SYNCHRONIZATION
You can now streamline your business processes by defaulting values from the position with position
synchronization. You can control the attributes you want to be synchronized at the Enterprise or Legal
Employer level using the Position Synchronization Configuration page. You can also configure if the user
will be allowed to change the synchronized attributes in the assignment. In all employment processes
the attributes that are configured to be synchronized will inherit the value from the position and are
displayed as read-only. All incumbents automatically inherit the changes made at the position level.
18

POSITION MANAGEMENT ENHANCEMENTS: NUMBER OF INCUMBENTS


You can now control how many workers can be hired with the Number of Incumbents validation. This
validation can prevent selecting a position in the assignment that does not have vacant Full Time
Equivalents (FTEs) or headcount. If overlap is allowed at the position, then a warning is displayed if the
open FTE or headcount is exceeded. If overlap is not allowed, you will not be able to continue unless you
select a different position that has vacant FTE or headcount.
ABILITY TO ADD TRANSACTION INITIATOR AS A CHECKLIST TASK PERFORMER
You can assign tasks to performers either individually or through roles. Tasks can now also be assigned
to the person who initiated the transaction, such as the action itself or the manual checklist allocation.
In the Manage Checklist Templates the transaction initiator can be added as a performer to checklist
tasks. When checklist tasks are assigned, the transaction initiator is automatically determined and the
task is assigned to them. This helps in tasks getting automatically assigned to persons without having to
manually identify the person.
ACCESS PERSON INFORMATION WHILE WORKING ON A CHECKLIST TASK
The performer and the owner can now view the basic details of the person for whom the task is
performed on a checklist task notification. Performers and owners can click the Person Contextual
Action icon to view additional details about the person including department and location.
MANAGE DELAY DURATION OF A CHECKLIST TASK
While defining tasks, you can set a delay duration that is used for calculating the planned start and end
dates. The planned dates are calculated by adding the delay duration to the allocation date. Tasks get
assigned on the allocation date, but tasks which have delay duration specified will have the planned
dates reflecting the delay.
RESTRICT CHECKLIST TEMPLATE TO A LOCALIZATION
You can now select localizations when you are creating a Checklist Template. An HR Specialist or a Line
Manager can choose a template that is applicable to all countries or a specific country to assign to an
employee.

employment assignment or terms to a collective agreement in the Add Person and Manage Employment
pages.
ABILITY TO DEFINE SENIORITY DATES
You can now define seniority dates and configure the rules for creating and defaulting seniority dates.
You can set up seniority dates at the person, work relationship, and assignment levels. You can
configure whether the user can override automatic defaulting of the seniority date by accessing the
Configure Seniority Dates task from the Setup and Maintenance work area. You can view and edit the
seniority dates of a person at different levels by using the Manage Seniority Dates page in the Person
Management work area, provided the configuration allows you to make edits.
ENHANCEMENTS TO GLOBAL TRANSFER
In a Global Transfer and Global Temporary Assignment, you can now copy assignment information from
the previous primary assignment. In a Global Temporary Assignment, you can now decide to make the
new work relationship primary.
APPROVAL NOTIFICATION PERSONALIZATION
Administrators can now personalize approval notifications. Using the Oracle Page Composer, they can
selectively show and hide various components of the notification, including fields, labels and regions.
They can also edit labels, color, and the page layout and add custom text and external links to the page.
ADD COMMENTS AND ATTACHMENTS WHEN SUBMITTING A TRANSACTION FOR APPROVAL
The initiator of a transaction can now add comments and attachments when submitting the transaction
for approval. Initiators can provide relevant information, instructions, and related documents, along
with the transaction to enable subsequent approvers to make informed decisions related to the
approval.
AUDIT OF HCM DATA ROLES AND SECURITY PROFILES
You can now track changes to HCM data roles and security profiles. You can review any changes,
identify who made them, and see when they were made. Internal auditors can now access the audit
data in the Audit Reports work area.

and organization security profiles to include objects with future start dates. By default future-dated
positions and organizations are excluded.

whether to include shared person information. By default, shared person information is excluded from
new person security profiles.

Users process. The Apply Autoprovisioning button has been removed from the Create Role Mapping and
Edit Role Mapping pages. This removal enforces the recommendation to use the Autoprovision Roles for
All Users process.
CHANGES TO PRIVILEGES FOR PREDEFINED ROLES
We have now streamlined security administration with the removal of inappropriate privileges from
predefined job roles. The Import Worker privilege is removed from the IT Security Manager role. Only
users with the Human Capital Management Application Administrator role have this privilege. Human
Resource Specialists can no longer run the Send Personal Data for Multiple Users to LDAP process. Only
users with the Human Capital Management Application Administrator role can run this process. Line
managers and workers no longer see the Edit User Name action on the Manage User Account page. Only
Human Resource Specialists can edit user names.
PERSON MANAGEMENT ACCESS
For simplicity, the Person Management entry in the Navigator is now secured by the Manage Person
Work Area functional privilege rather than the Search Person functional privilege. You may need to
review custom roles that access the Person Management work area to ensure that they have the
Manage Person Work Area functional privilege.
SEND PENDING LDAP REQUESTS
You can now diagnose any problems with the Send Pending LDAP Requests process more easily with
improved logging details. You can manage user and role provisioning requests smoothly as the process
now checks that all requests are processed before terminating or timing out. You can submit the
process knowing that the status of any previous run is accurate.

Notifications, Reputation Score Details, and Social Role Details.
EMPLOYEE ACCESS TO REPUTATION SCORES AND SOCIAL ROLES
Employees now have access to their reputation scores which were only available to managers in
previous releases. In addition, employees have access to a new view of their social media roles which
are based on their online social behaviors. This feature complements the score based reputation
allowing workers and managers multiple views of a persons online social reputation. The social roles
view gives the user a different perspective on their social networking behavior. Employees are identified
as an ambassador, communicator, expert, innovator, leader, knowledge broker, team player, or a
combination. Employees are presented with information about the role they socially represent and how
it relates to their social networking behaviors. Both views, reputation scores and social roles, support
actionable feedback to support improvements in specific scores and social roles.
EMPLOYEE MENTORSHIP
Employees can now request any co-worker to identify themselves as mentors to complement their
social networking and behavior. As part of their social reputation profile employees can also identify
themselves as mentors, making themselves and their social reputation profile available to co-workers
for mentorship. This feature also allows managers to suggest mentors for their team members.
