    Activities System will automatically create a Business Partner when ever a new Personnel number or Organization unit is created in HR, within the number range provided in ECC system.To enable this, for Employee use Switch #10 & for Org Unit use Switch # 6 in the table above. The above switches also help to transfer all the changes made to infotypes and objects. Please note that you may need to provide EXTERNAL NUMBER RANGE in other Systems in SAP business suite to accomodate the HR BPs transfered through ALE IDOCs. Use Transaction Code BP to create BP objects for Person / Organization Unit / group. Standard system transfers the field values of the following Infotypes IT0001, 0002, 0006, 0105, HRP1000, 1028 & 1032. Hide sensitive fields before distribution. The BP object cannot be pulled through PP01 transaction. The best way to find the BP object number created in the background is to do SE16 search. ( select Object P or O, Related obj type BP and give other values to narrow down the search as required.) In SRM system address for the BP is mandatory. Use Switch # 5 in the above table to enable transfer of address to data to EBP / SRM system. The standard ALE IDOCs may not create applicant data in E-recruitment automatically. There is a bit customization needed to enable this.

    Synchronization Program Standard has provided Report - HRALXSYNC is useful : To run consistency checks between the transered BPs and the objects in the receiving system. To create BP objects for already existing Personnel numbers or Org Units.
