2958680 - EEOC fields on the first candidate application are being synced onto the next application


EEOC data from the candidate's first application is appearing automatically in their second application.

Standard fields affected: disabilityStatus, veteranStatus and ethnicity


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Candidate creates a candidate profile and fills out their first application
  2. They enter a value for the field 'disability status' for example
  3. They then create a second application for a different job requisition but the disability status field is already prepopulated with their answer from the first application


This is an expected behaviour


Standard EEOC fields disabilityStatus, veteranStatus and ethnicity are stored on the candidate table in the database, and will be synced to future applications by design.

If you change the value of these fields on the second application, this will update the candidate database and will then be used for any future applications by that candidate.
