2216586 - 'Masked' fields do not appear in Ad Hoc Reporting


In the Business Configuration UI, if a field is set to Masked = Yes, the field will disappear in Ad Hoc Reporting. Is this expected behavior for 'Masked' fields?


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
    • Analytics & Reporting(Ad Hoc, YouCalc, Canvas / ORD)
      •  Adhoc Reports and Builder


Fields that are changed to be 'Masked' in the UI via Admin Tools > Business Configuration UI, will not be viewable in Ad Hoc Reporting and cannot be used within a report.

This can also be checked from Provisioning. Download the Succession Data Model and find the hris-field paycompvalue:

<hris-field id="paycompvalue" visibility="both" pii="true">

pii="true" is masking the field, this needs to be changed to pii="false" so that this field will show up in the report.

This is expected behavior.
Please note, if you use Advanced Reporting then you will be able to report on this data there.
