2968141 - iw_IL language can be selected in Provisioning but not he_IL


Customer would like to use the Hebrew locale he_IL, however only iw_IL is available on the system


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Attempt to Configure job template in he_IL
  2. Limitation as Bizx language is iw_IL
  3. As workaround try to install a custom language but notice this only creates a new language with the same locale code iw_IL and not he_IL


  • iw_IL is the Locale identifier internally used by Java Locale for Hebrew and that is the reason this is being used in the system. 
  • Please use iw_IL
