When querying in the entity JobReqScreeningQuestion using the operator $select I have no results in the response back from SuccessFactors.
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
- Perform a query on the entity JobReqScreeningQuestion, for example:
odata/v2/JobReqScreeningQuestion?$filter=jobReqId eq 55 &$format=json
- See that the system will return you all values present on that entity:
- Now perform the same query, but add the $select operator, for example:
odata/v2/JobReqScreeningQuestion?$select=jobReqId&$filter=jobReqId eq 55 &$format=json
- Notice that now you don't have any results back from your query:
This because of the way the system was desgined and happens because the JobReqScreeningQuestion has an internal dependency on the value jobReqContent.
To perform a query on this entity and use the $select operator, the solution is simple as adding the field jobReqContent to your $select field list.
For example, if we run the same query as before, but add the jobReqContent into the $select operation, we get the values back on the response.
Query: odata/v2/JobReqScreeningQuestion?$select=jobReqId,jobReqContent&$filter=jobReqId eq 55 &$format=json
OBS: Notice that the system brought back only the field present on the $select operation, as it should
