When a value should be selected for a field, the value recently added to the picklist is not appearing in the dropdown.

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite


The MDF Picklist has two versions. The version with the updated values is the previous version, instead of the most recently created.


The solution for this case would be to add the newly added values to the newest version of the picklist in Picklist Center. After doing this update, please, make sure to run an OData API Metadata Refresh in your instance to make sure that the values are going to be updated over to the page you are trying to make changes.

Once performing these two steps, the new values should be available in the field drop down.
