  • The above steps can be followed to migrate a complete setup of absence management (Absence Plan, Absence Type, Absence Reasons, Eligibility Profiles, and Derived factors).
  • If any eligibility is defined for an Absence plan, we need to migrate the eligibility profiles first, and then we need to migrate the absence plan. (Child components (Reasons, Eligibility Profiles, Derived factors, Fast Formula) should be migrated first)
