2789682 - Sequence from "employment_information" is not in order in Compound Employee - SuccessFactors SFAPI


The order which "employment_information" segments are shown in the response of a query on Compound Employee are not being displayed in order according to its "start_date" value.


  • SuccessFactors SFAPI
  • Compound Employee


It's not possible to order the entity "employment_information" by its "start_date" value, since it's not an effective-dated entity.

If there were results in your query which were ordered by their "start_date" value, it was only a coincidence, since they are shown according to the order which they were placed in the database.
