2536252 - Business Goal/Business Section Level Custom field not appearing in worksheet When Multiple Business Section is enabled - Variable Pay


  • We have enabled 2 business sections. The Custom field added at assigment level is coming correctly on the varaible pay worksheet but those added at a Business Goal/Business Section level is not showing up on the worksheet.  
  • We tried the same configuration with 1 business section and custom field from all the sections were displayed on the Variable Pay worksheet.


  • Successfactors Variable Pay

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enable 1 Business Section. Add custom fields at assignment /bizgoal/bizsect level.
  2. The custom fields added above would appear on the variable pay worksheet.
  3. Enable 2 Business Sections. Add custom fields at assignment /bizgoal/bizsect level.
  4. The custom fields added at assignment level would be visible but not at Business Goal/Business Section.


  • Custom Fields at BizSect and BizGoal Sections are not supported while multiple business sections are enabled.


  • Use Single Business section if you are planning to use Custom fields at Business Goal/Business Section level as this is currently not supported for Multiple Business section.
