2444218 - Gender Talent Flag is not showing on Succession Org chart


The Gender field was configured as Talent Flag in Provisioning > Org Chart XML, but the icons do not appear in the Succession org chart.


SAP SuccessFactors Succession Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Succession > Succession Org Chart;
  2. Search for a sample user;
  3. Click the display options and verify that gender is selected, but it is not showing in the position node for the users.


This may be caused due to a Picklist association with the standard element Gender in the Data Model, which is not supported, as Gender is a string field.

Wrong code example in Data Model:

<standard-element id="gender" max-length="2" required="true" matrix-filter="false">
    <picklist id="gender"/>


  1. Remove Picklist id tag from standard element gender;
  2. Instead of using integer number in the value section of the XML code in "Edit Org Chart Configuration", it is necessary to use the supported values for Gender field:
    • F for Female
    • M for Male
    • D for Undeclared
    • U for Unknown
    • O for Others

Code example in Org Chart XML:

<iconSetOption index="3" key="gender" target="both">
<label lang="en-US">Gender</label>
