Wouldn’t it be great if changes or additions made to your core HR data in SuccessFactors could be passed on automatically to all linked child objects across the structure? Or what about updating structural information in an automated manner?

Ingentis business rule trigger identifies new or edited objects and executes the “edit and save” action for all linked objects within a configurable evaluation path – triggering your SAP SuccessFactors business rules. This process can be scheduled or initiated manually.

Typical events covered by business rules include:


Validating data entry

Triggering workflows


Sending error messages

Setting default values

Calculating values

Propagating data

Business rules in SAP SuccessFactors are, however, only executed following the pull principle. Consequently, new information is not pushed down to other objects along the structure.

This is where Ingentis business rule trigger steps in, triggering objects to pull updated information from higher levels, if applicable.

Use Cases – How Ingentis business rule trigger works

This way, Ingentis business rule trigger not only saves you lots of time but also contributes to improved data quality.
