How to Add a Trigger Rule in an MDF Object?

The following article will help explain on how you can add a trigger rule in an MDF Object through SFCodeBot.

Navigate to CodeBot for SAP SuccessFactors, enter your login details.

On the Home screen, click on Employee Central module.

Select your workspace from the next screen.

Navigate to a generated workbook in my case iteration # 245. Click the sheet icon.

The workbook will appear in a new tab on your browser. Select the Trigger Rules worksheet.

In column B, choose an MDF Object that is available on your SAP Success Factors account. Suggest the type of trigger rule you want to create in Column D and its name in Column E. The Column C is optional since it allows you to place your trigger rule in a specific field. Finally, select the MDF Object you wish to execute and set processing status to pending in the last section (Column G – H).

Close the workbook and navigate back to SFCodeBot. Click the hamburger icon under the Actions tab for the same iteration number. Select ‘Start Configuration’ option from the dropdown menu.

The Start Configuration popup will appear. Enter your credentials and some execution notes. Lastly, select the Trigger Rules MDF checkbox, and hit Confirm and Start button.

Later on, you can click the information icon to monitor the progress of your iteration. Screenshots will be visible once changes are successfully pushed to the instance.

Once the status shows complete, go back in the workbook, and observe that these triggers have been added successfully as the rows and its corresponding fields are now highlighted green. Meanwhile, the processing status has also turned to processed.

You can also confirm these changes by switching to Configure Object Definitions on SAP Success Factors and route to the mdf object that you have created trigger rules for.
