2478297 - Goal / Objective Management Ad hoc report shows ID number instead of label / text value


Ad Hoc Report of Goal / Objective Management domain has fields showing the ID number and not the text / label value.

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

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Ad Hoc reports
  2. Create a new report of Goal or Objective Management domain
  3. Add fields such as "Salutation" that are configured as picklist in the data model
  4. Preview the report
  5. See ID values instead of the label values "Mr.", "Mrs.", "Ms." or "Miss."



The reason the Goal/Objective Management report pulls numeric values in Ad Hoc is because some fields of the User Data File (Admin Center > Employee Export) have numeric values in it. These fields are configured with numbers because they are picklists and Goal/Objective Management domain currently does not support picklist transformation number to label function in the Adhoc Configuration tab.



If we create another adhoc with a different domain like Employee Profile we can see that the same field "Salutation" is available in the Configuration tab to be changed in label or ID:
