SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Admin Center > Setup Agency Access
  2. Add new agency > Fill up the required fields
  3. Set Candidate Ownership to value "0" > Save
  4. Error Occurred > Please validate your candidate ownership duration. 


The candidate ownership days of ownership of new candidates doesn't accept the value as 0 when the ownership is set to ownership for duration.


Set the following candidate ownership value to 1 or greater and the following agency will save the information. Currently this is an expected behavior that the system does not accept "0" as a value in the candidate ownership. Since the following value cannot be used in the candidate ownership then customers can raise this as an enhancement request.
