2680702 - Spell check doesn't work for custom field in Development Plan


  •  Spell check shows for custom field in Development Objective but doesn't work
  •  Spell check is enabled in Development Objective template but doesn't perform spell check


SuccessFactors BIZX: Career Development Planning

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Go to Development plan and create development objective
  2.  Spell check shows for custom field but doesn't perform any check



The xml id of the impacted custom field wouldn't be configured correctly. If a custom field xml id contains any of these characters like -,_,%, etc then spell check won't work for those fields.


Clients need to contact their Implementation Partner to correct the xml id of the impacted custom field

 Steps to be followed:

  1.   Go to provisioning
  2.   Export the impacted Development Plan template xml
  3.   Look for the custom field,say the xml id is "cust-reflection"
  4.   Change the xml id to reflection and upload development xml


  Change in field xml id will result in data loss for that field therefore keep the backup of the data and add the data after updating the xml configuration.
