How to delete job requisition templates from the system


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


At the moment, we do not have the possibility to delete existing job requisition templates. With the way the system is currently designed, it is not possible to delete a template. It is only possible to deactivate it.

However, deactivating a template can be a very critical operation and should be carefully planned because of the following condition: job requisition templates consist of an XML code that defines the structure of the requisition forms.

Every requisition form created upon a given template will be tied to that template, including application data from candidates related to those requisitions so inactivating a template could impact the associated forms.

Partners can deactivate a job requisition template from the back-end.

Customers can also deactivate a job requisition template by going to Manage Templates > Recruiting Management > Job Requisition and unchecking the active checkbox.

If you want to deactivate a job requisition template, please also go to Form Template Settings, select the template and click the Disable button. If the template remains enabled here, it will still appear on the job requisition page (Recruiting > Job Requisitions > Create New).

If you would like the current system behaviour to be changed, feel free to create an enhancement request and refer to KBA 2090228 - How to Submit Ideas for SAP SuccessFactors Products
