2785737 - A number gets added to job title when creating a requisition via Copy Existing Job Requisition


  • When creating a new job requisition via 'Copy Existing Job Requisition', a number automatically gets inserted following the internal or external job title.
  • Is there a way to prevent this from occurring?

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

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new job requisition by copying from an existing job requisition
  2. Fill out requirements and create the job requisition
  3. As expected, a number is added at the end of the job title


  • This is a default system behavior. The system automatically adds the number at the end for the job title in order to identify that this is the copy of another requisition.


  • As seen in the job title, a number gets added to identify this as a copy of another job requisition.
  • However, this can be edited while creating this job requisition by removing this number from the job title


  • Also, an enhancement request can be submitted in order to verify the feasibility of preventing this from happening in a future version of the system.
  • Please refer to KBA 2090228 - How to submit enhancement requests for SAP SuccessFactors products.
