2542926 - Forwarded Candidates behavior on required fields in application pipeline - Recruiting Management


Behavior of forwarded candidates in application pipeline


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Forward a candidate to a job requisition.
  2.  Move the candidate to the next step in pipeline without filling up the required fields.


Forwarded candidates can move to the next application status without completing any required fields


This is expected behavior. Required fields on the application do not apply to forwarded candidates. Forwarded candidates can move through the pipeline without completing required application fields

Additional note:
This will not happen when the update is done via ODATA API call:
in this case any mandatory field should be provided in order to succeed the call. This is the current design of ODATA service.
