Create or modify an HR profile

Employees can directly edit some information in their HR profile, such as emergency contact information, but they are restricted from editing certain fields. If employees want to change information that they are restricted from editing, they must submit a general request to HR for the changes.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_hr_core.secure_info_writer, sn_hr_core.basic, or sn_hr_core.manager

About this task

The HR Administrator [sn_hr_core.admin] can configure which HR profile fields an employee can update. An update to information that the employee cannot change requires an HR employee information change request.
Note: Use the configurable white list to add fields that users can modify themselves. This whitelist is a system property and accessed by going to HR Administration > Properties. The list of fields appears as comma separated and called sn_hr_core.hr_profile_editable_fields.

To update the HR profile when an employee information change request is assigned to you, complete the following steps.


  1. Navigate to HR Profile > HR Profiles.
    The HR Profiles list opens.
  2. Find the existing HR profile to update by selecting User from the HR Profiles list search menu, typing the name, and pressing Enter. Also, you can click a profile number to open a user profile.
    To create an HR profile, from HR Profiles click New and type the user name in the User field on the HR Profile New record form to create the profile. You cannot change the user name after an HR profile is saved.
  3. Click the profile number to open the user profile.
    The profile opens displaying populated name, manager, department, location, and contact fields from the user record.
