Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the candidate application while applying for a job.
  2. Notice that the override is not working for the candidate.


The country field is not defined on the Job Requisition template.

The countries specified in the override refers to the country of the job requisition. If the country field is not defined on the job requisition template, then the overrides cannot work.


The country field must be defined in the job req template with type derived as shown below:
