From the 2H 2020 Release, Picklist Management will no longer be available in instances with Legacy Picklists.


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite


For more information on this change, please see the links provided in the 'See Also' section.

SAP understands that in some cases, it is required to make changes to Legacy Picklists as part of the pre-migration process if there are conflicts between Legacy and MDF Picklists. If this is the case, please open an incident with SAP Product Support who will be able to assist.

Since 1H 2024 release, You can no longer perform any operation on legacy picklists if they are not migrated to MDF. Ensure that you have migrated to MDF picklists to perform operations on picklists. There is no impact on any feature if the tenant is already migrated to MDF picklist.

We've made this update to ensure that all customers migrate from legacy picklists to MDF picklists.
