SAP Successfactors Compensation

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Configure Chinese characters in the formula field for a column in compensation and save
  2. Returns a validation error


System Limitation


Unfortunately the system is working as designed and this is a limitation with current capabilities. The JEXL library that we use does not support Chinese characters. There is no fixed that is planned or can be completed at this time. Please avoid using these types of characters in the formula fields for compensation.
