  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Metadata framework (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

- Go to Home-> Admin Centre -> Configure Object Definitions
- Click Advanced
- Set Including Actives = Yes
- Search = Object Definition -> Search for an object
- Click -> Take Action -> Make Correction
- Result: No status field is available for edit.




1. Admin Center>Configure Object Definitions
2. Search Object Definition> Object Definition
3. Take Action> Make Correction
4. mdfSystemStatus -> Click Details -> Set Visibility to EDITABLE.
5. Save

NOTE: This should not be done to standard pre delivered MDF objects. It can be done to custom MDF Objects in a calculated way when you wish to control the instances being active or inactive.

This can come to use when you are using a GO (Generic Object) type field on a custom MDF object and you want to control the values in the dropdown as per their status =Active/ Inactive.
