In this blog I will explain how to create EIT in Oracle HRMS.EITs are basically Descriptive Flexfields (DFF).Standard product has EIT DFFs defined in forms such as Person,Assignment,Job etc.We can add segments to the defined DFF based on our requirements so that it will appear in corresponding screen.Compared to SIT EIT has added security.We can enable EIT for specific responsibility.
