2764377 - Calculated Column <NOW> as parameter - SuccessFactors Integration Center


You want to use the <NOW> parameter as part of an calculated field or calculated filter integration center

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


  • SuccessFactors HCM Suite - BizX
    • Integration Center

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Creates a job in integration center.
  2. Add a calculated field or calculated filter to the one of the properties
  3. The <NOW> parameter is not respected as part of the calculated field
  4. Integration does not respect <NOW> parameter when comparing directly to another field


The cause is integration center does not support the direct typing of the <NOW> parameter for comparison against another property.


The <NOW> parameter calculation can be achieved by following steps below :

1.  Select the Field Value = and the More fields Options:
