Information in this document applies to any platform.


Currently, Germany does not appear in the Country LOV when adding National IDs as there was no German HR requirement for it. Per <Document 1601193.1>, there are constitutionality questions regarding this, and the official recommendation is to store these values in a flexfield.

The customer does not agree with the provided solution of using a flexfield, specifically for Germany when similar data is stored as National ID for other countries. If the ID type can be identified (SSN, Pension ID), then it lessens the implication that Germany has an official National ID.
