2662947 - Is it possible to check if a field value for a Custom Field is Unique in a System?


You have created a custom field and you need a check that the value entered into that field is unique and does not exist in the system


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Custom Field in Job Information Portlet (Eg: A License Key) 
  2. You would like to have a validation in place where the same value of this field is not entered twice (i.e. same License Key value for two users)


  • This functionality does not currently exist in the product
  • As of now there is no Pre-Delivered Setting or a Rule Function in place that could validate this
