SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding 1.0

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Complete the NES and sign the forms.
  2. Notice on signing the forms, the Suffix is appended along with the Digitally Signed text


The sgnEmployee key fetches values based on the conditions below:

  • FirstName + MiddleName + LastName + Suffix (if defined and value captured in ONB) + SuffixText (if defined and Display key is maintained for Key: Suffix)
  • If any of the key is missing, rest of the values will be appended and will be displayed.

If the Suffix is added as a numeric value (picklist id for the Suffix used), check the Display Key configured for the Suffix as it should be SuffixText
