  • This article explains how to coordinate a test with Customer Support in order to reproduce issues with the email notifications during the routing processes


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


We need to reproduce a specific example and collect all the relevant information for the investigation.

TEST – Customer STEPS:

  1. Create a new Jeb requisition selecting the same Job Requisition Template of the previous Requisition that had issues with the notifications
  2. Please use the name “Test-TicketNumber” for this Job Requisition
  3. Fill out all the mandatory fields and choose the appropriate Username as actor for this test, we recommend  to use test users if you are in Production
  4. Route the Job Requisition till the step before the step that has problem
  5. Update the ticket with the support and provide the following information:

a. Company ID, current Username, Requisition number
d. Explain which username will get the Job requisition in the next steps
e. Provide the list of usernames that are supposed to get the Email Notification (it could be more than one, for example: someone in Carbon Copy)
f. Clarify and provide the email template you expect to get
g. Confirm if we can replace for a very short time the email addresses (please read the step 1 below)

At this point the Support will continue the test:

  1. Replace temporary the email address for the users involved on the notification, please clarify if we can do this otherwise we will not change the email addresses and we will just ask to check if you get any email.
  2. Send the document to next step and take a screenshot of the Time Stamp Server immediately.
  • If we do not get any notification (or if the customer does not get any notification) we will request the Email Server Logs and check if that email has been sent at that time to that email address.
  • Following this process we can easily understand the issue and work on it.
