How to set up department and organizational hierarchies.

Department Trees

Using the predefined tree structure for a department tree, you can create multiple department trees and then create multiple versions of each tree to build hierarchical representations of the departments within your organization. The top node of the tree is a department, and all of the child nodes are also departments. You can have only one top-level node for a department tree, and you cannot add a department as a node more than one time in the same tree version.

You can use department trees for the following purposes:

  • Secure data by using a department tree in an organization security profile.

  • Create custom gallery messages to appear in the portraits of workers assigned to departments within a department tree. For example, you may create a gallery message notifying workers of a server outage or a public holiday in a particular location.

Organization Trees

If you use the Oracle Fusion Enterprise Structures Configurator to set up your enterprise structure, a default organization tree is created automatically for you, with the ultimate holding company as the first node, divisions and country holding companies as the second level, and legal employers as the third level. You can modify the organization tree as needed, and you can create additional organization trees. If you do not use the Enterprise Structures Configurator, then you can create organization trees based on the predefined organization tree structure. In an organization tree, you can select any type of organization for the top node and for the child nodes, but you can have only one top-level node.

You can secure HCM data by using an organization tree to identify organizations in an organization security profile.
