3128992 - Links for EC Elements and Rules


  • Request to add a link to warning message for EC Elements.
  • Links defined in the message definition are not working and displaying the HTML code, instead.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central


It is not recommended to use HTML or BB code in Message Definitions, due to security reasons. None of them are supported by EC Elements or Rules, which means that if any of them is configured in Message Definitions, the HTML code will be displayed in the UI when the message is raised.


This is the current system behavior.

However, if this is an important topic for your business requirements, kindly consider submitting an enhancement request, by following the instructions listed in KBA 2090228.
