2253326 - Create Report to Include "External Job Description" within a Job Requisition - Recruiting Management


You wish to fetch field "External Job Description" within a Job Requisition.

Is it possible to report the external description of all of the jobs that have been posted?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


You have to find the field-id of the field-label called External Job Description

We can find this from Provisioning system.


Provisioning --> Company Settings --> Managing Recruiting --> Import/Update/Export Job Requisition Template --> Export the Job requisition Template

 Within the XML, Search for the field-label "External Job Description".

We can see that the corresponding field-definition id is called extListingLayout.

Please form a Select Query using SFAPI to fetch the details of External Job Description as below.

SELECT extListingLayout from JobRequisition$### (Here, ### refers to the Job requisition Template id and differs from one account to another.)

The result of the API Query would be something like below

<extListingLayout><![CDATA[The Sales Manager is a sales professional with a history of over-performance in quota attainment, winning new business and developing existing accounts. <br><br> <b>Responsibilities</b><br> The successful candidates will possess the following qualifications: <br> <ul><li>8-10 year background of successful sales experience to Fortune 2000 accounts </li> <li>Must have a history of exceeding annual sales quotas for last 3-5 consecutive years.</li> <li>Ability to manage major account sales cycles to global Fortune 2000 organizations </li> <li>Will have key contacts in the software industry. </li> <li>Excellent written/verbal communication skills to interact with senior level corporate management. </li> <li>Operates with a sense of urgency and has a positive, winning attitude. </li> <li>Proven ability to prospect and manage a designated territory to maximize revenue growth. </li></ul>]]></extListingLayout>
