2817836 - Not all fields anonymized in the More Information section


Not all fields are getting anonymized in the More Information section of the application.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Set up an application purge and run it 
  2. Go to the anonymized application and in the More Information section you will see that some fields have not been anonymized. Custom fields are anonymized but the standard fields are not getting anonymized.


As of the current system behavior, this is considered expected if the standard field is only configured in the Candidate Profile template. Custom fields that are configured only on the candidate profile will anonymize in the More Information section. The workaround for this is to configure the standard field in the application template as well and it will purge.

Our product management team have created an enhancement ticket for this to change the behavior so that standard fields will get anonymized if they are only defined in the candidate profile. However, there is no fix date set for this.
