2980908 - Restore Deleted Job Requisitions - Error: The selected job requisition(s) could not be restored - Recruiting Management


When trying to restore a deleted job requisition, it shows a generic error "The selected job requisition(s) could not be restored".


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Restore a job requisition via Admin Center > Restore Deleted Job Requisitions
  2. It shows an error "The selected job requisition(s) could not be restored"


Currently, restoration could fail in the following scenarios:

  1. When the job requisition has an approver in the route map, who is a purged user
  2. When the Position GO on the deleted requisition, is used by another open requisition


It is an expected behavior for above-mentioned possible causes. Please create a new job requisition in such scenarios.

A future enhancement for printing the exact error during restoration failure of Deleted job requisitions is under reviewing. If you would like to have more details about it, you can reach out your CSM and refer the request RCM-81091.
