Fusion Global HCM: Link Two Existing Workers With Different Person Numbers To Same Account (Doc ID 2467720.1)

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have a number of users that have two different Person Numbers, and two different Worker objects associated with them (one for each Person Number). This data was imported through HCM co-existence so that we could use it to generate employees for the approval workflow rules to refer to. At the initial time of setup, we did not have Enterprise-level HCM rules set to check for duplicate Worker objects. (I have enabled that to stop duplicates based on last name, full first name, DOB, and gender; or on National ID).
The data that was brought from Peoplesoft from co-existence itself is a merge of two different previous Peoplesoft databases, and thus, the multiple Person Numbers is accurate with respect to the data present in Peoplesoft. This cannot be merged due to other data needs.

1.) How do I "link", or otherwise show that two Person Objects refer to the same individual after the fact? Documentation I've read only states information on duplicate checking at the time of creation.

2.) If I cannot tie the Person Objects together to say they are the same, can I do something to manipulate the existing user login account to associate it to the newer person record? The email used for both person objects is the same, and thus any new account generated will be appended with a number. I would like to instead say that the old user account now refers to the new person object.

3.) I have enabled duplicate checking on an enterprise level. Is there an existing report or other functionality to see all the possible duplicate accounts?
