2925869 - Position fields are not available in the Position to Job Requisition mapping rule - Recruiting/Employee Central


  • Custom fields created in the Position Object are not available in the field mapping rule for Position to Job Requisition creation
  • Fields of type Number and Boolean are not available for mapping in the rule for field mapping between Position and Job requisition


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a custom field of type NUMBER OR BOOLEAN in the Position Object
  2. Create a Business rule using "Configure Business Rules"
  3. Select Scenario "Map Fields from Position to Job Requisition in Recruiting Integration" from Position Management
  4. The Custom field created is not available for mapping


This is Expected Behavior


  • Currently it is not possible to map the fields of type "NUMBER" or "BOOLEAN" directly to job requisition.
  • You will have to use the FORMAT function to map the fields of these data types
  • Refer the section "Setting Up Integration with Recruitment" in Position Management guide for more information

Please refer to the following rule as an example:
