2955272 - People Search quick card showing incorrect First/Last name


People Search quick card showing a different First/last Name than what is actually set for the user.


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Core

Reproducing the Issue

  • Login to BizX
  • Search for the affected user using the people search bar.
  • The search quick card will show a different first/last name than what is set of the user.


This can happen when->

  • The instance has Name Format feature enabled.
  • The concerned user has a Formal Name set for him/her in the database.

If 'Name Format' is enabled, the search quick card will display formal name instead of first name/last name. This is expected behavior.


The solution options are ->

  • Either change the Formal Name for the user to whatever the customer wants to see in the Quick Card.
  • Disable the Name Format feature, if it is not required.
