Purging Manager & Alternate Manager in SuccessFactors LMS

Scenario: This blog covers the scenario where an employee acts as a Manager or an Alternate Manager for another employee in the hierarchy, in a Non EC BizX – LMS environment.

Note: The users mentioned below in the Employee Hierarchy are the dummy users.

Employee Hierarchy

Hierarchy Details

Points to Note:

Manager in BizX = Primary Manager in LMS. Employees data is maintained in the UDF (User Data File) in the BizX. Hence, the Employee – Manager hierarchy is synced from BizX to LMS via connector. The hierarchy involves Employee, Manager mapped in BizX and Alternate Manager managed in LMS. Matrix Manager, Custom Manager, Second Manager & HR Business Partner are not mapped in BizX; which leads to assumption they are not being used in LMS as well. There can be 1 or multiple Alternate Managers for one employee. As default, for all the users, the Person GUID must be same in BizX and LMS. The purge request type for this scenario is ‘Purge Inactive User’. The Employee we are considering here is still ‘Active’ whereas the Manager and Alternate Manager are ‘Inactive’.

Step [1/2]: Data Preparation


Make the Manager and Alternate Manager as ‘Inactive’ in BizX.
