User ID created with junk numbers -Cand Regis - SAP e-recruiting


Application : Candidate registration

When any candidate is providing  First name, last name , user id , email address, pwd , it is being created .  But when we look into table usr02,

it is created with junk numbers, and alias is created with same user id given.

this is no error but standard SAP system behaviour. External candidates log to the e-rec system using their alias instead of their user id. That's why the user entered on registration is used for the alias. The actual user id is "randomized" and not disclosed to the external candidate. This is a security action. During the last couple of years SAP had to apply several bug fixes to remove issues where the external candidate could get access to its actual user id (e.g. when creating a data overview the user id was in the pdf attributes whichwas removed). So this is an intended behaviour.

Kind regards
