2588349 - Cannot edit fields on Employment Details block


Not able to place fields on the Employment Details block. Seems like it’s blocked.

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


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • People Profile 3 (PP3)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Configure People Profile;
  2. Select Employment Details block and Configure Fields;
  3. Drag any "Termination" field to "Employment Details";


  1. Note that you are not able to move those fields;


This is an expected behavior.

The fields in employment info are divided into two sections: The Employment Details (upper) section and the Termination (lower) section. Each field, including custom fields, has a fixed assignment to one section or the other, which cannot be modified.


Find the complete list of which fields go where in the document Data Objects Table in Employee Central in the SAP Help portal in the sections Employment Information and Termination Information.

 Employment Details custom-string1 to custom-string15 and custom-string21 to custom-string80

 Termination Details custom-string16 to custom-string20 and custom-string81 custom-string100
