2939051 - Location Object used as filter in the Recruiting Career Site will ALSO pull inactive values - RCM


When using the Location (Foundation Object) as a Recruiting Career Site filter, you notice that inactive object values are also displayed.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the RCM Career Site (it could be either the internal or external one, depending on your system settings)
  2. Expand the Location (object) picklist and see values that were set as inactive.


System expected behaviour, confirmed by SAP Development/Engineering.


As of now, it is actually expected that the field "Location (FO)" should give both "active and inactive" locations, considering this is how our system was designed to behave. This was done because there could be some jobs which may have been created when the current inactive location was active (physically maybe), hence the applicants shouldn't be prevented from filtering the job requisitions from those locations.

Suggestions to change current system behaviors are always welcome. If you believe this could be working differently, please let us know through our Enhancement Request process.
