Employee Number Sequence Is Wrong after Enabling Global Employee Numbering (Doc ID 460955.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

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


The Issue you are having is that after Switching on the profile option HR:Use Global Employee Numbering to 'Yes' you loaded new employees via WEB ADI and noticed that the employee number sequence generation went from 3 (last employee in the system before the load) to 3429, 3430 ....

The next employee number should have been 4, not 3429 and you need to understand why this happened urgently. Even if you manually enter employees, the new numbers are all above 3000. I have uploaded information including screen shots to show you more information on our issue.
