In this knowledge snippet we look at something that should be toward the bottom of your project list of priorities – uploading employee photos in your SAP S/4HANA Cloud system. The employee photo can be found in the enterprise search results as well as in the employee overview page.

If you are using your S/4HANA Cloud system in concert with SAP Success Factors Employee Central integration and thus leveraging the out of the box integration capabilities that exist between these two solutions, then you do not need to worry about this. If your employees have maintained their photos in Success Factors, they will automatically be replicated in your S/4HANA Cloud system.

So this snippet, really only applies, if you are trying to connect a third party HR system to your S/4HANA Cloud system or just wanting to upload employee pictures in S/4HANA Cloud (please note that not everyone likes to have their much shot available, so you should first seek your employees’ consents before proceeding with uploading their picture !)

Example Code Snippet

In the video, when I test the integration, there is a code snippet that use and which I have added below. Amend the content to reflect the data in your own system.

{
"ExtEmployeeID":"THE_EMPLOYEE_ID", 
"Sourcesystem":"THE_CALLING_EXTERNAL_SYSTEM",
"ContentType":"image/jpg",
"Photo":"THE_BASE_^$_ENCODED_DATA_STREAM"
}
