2894942 - Pre-Screening Questions showing a code when opening the application - Recruiting Management


When opening the application, looking at the Job Specific Info the system shows the following code inside the field "questionResponse":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE question-response-list PUBLIC "-//SuccessFactors, Inc.//DTD question-response-list//EN" "question-response-list.dtd"><question-response-list></question-response-list>

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Find a Job Requisition;
  2. Click to apply to the Job Requisition;
  3. Inside the Job Specific Info section, check the field questionResponse and notice that there is a xml code inside it.


This is due to the Publie property on the field questionResponse on the Application Template is set as True.


To resolve this problem we need to have the property questionResponse changed back to "false". This is something that is documented on the Recruiting Implementation Documentation, where it states that the value of the property "Public" should be false. Check the section 9.1.8 Application Template Standard Field Guide on the Recruiting Implementation Guide.
