2619637 - Succession Org Chart – Icons are not appearing because MDF picklist does not have minValue field


The icons are not appearing in the Succession Org Chart for any picklist fields.


SAP SuccessFactors Succession & Development


Instance has MDF Picklists enabled and it is not possible to configure the “minValue” field – which is used by the Succession Org Chart Icon configuration – for the picklist options.


If the instance has been migrated to use MDF Picklists instead of Legacy Picklist Management, the “minValue” needs to be enabled in for the Picklist Values. To do so, you can follow the below steps:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Configure Object Definitions.
  2. Select “Object Definition” in the first dropdown and “Picklist Value” in the second dropdown.
  3. Click “Take Action” > “Make Correction”.
  4. Look for the “minVal” field > click “Details” > change the “Visibility” to “Editable”.
  5. Click “Done” > Click “Save”.


After enabling the “minVal” field in Configure Object Definitions, you should be able to provide a “Min Value” for the picklists that the Succession Org Chart uses:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Picklist Center.
  2. Search for the desired picklist.
  3. Choose “Take Action” > “Make Correction” for the latest effective dated record (or Insert New Record).
  4. Insert the “Min Value” for all options in the picklist, which should match what is configured in the Succession Org Chart XML.
  5. Save.

After correcting the “minValue” of the picklist options, the icons should start appearing in the Succession Org Chart. If they are still not appearing, you can check this Guided Answer - Succession Org Chart - Icons/Talent Flags are not displaying.
