3170609 - Picklist values are not searchable when translation is not maintained for the enabled language

Symptom

Picklist values are not searchable when translation is not maintained for the enabled language.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Core

Reproducing the Issue

Pre-requisite:

Create a picklist "Test" with only default value maintained.

Default locale of the system is Korean (or any language).

Associate the picklist created to a field "XYZ"

In our Example: Phone information HRIS element

Go to any test profile -> Phone information section -> edit 

  • Result 1: Click on the drop down of the field "XYZ". All the default values appear while scrolling, though enabled language(Korean in our case) is NOT maintained.
  • Result 2: Search a value in the field "XYZ", System says "No Data" in the enabled language, though default values are maintained.

 

 

 

Cause

Currently NOT in scope.

Resolution

 This is current and legacy behavior i.e. type ahead search works ONLY on User Locale.

 Please ensure that you have a translation maintained for the enabled locale for picklist values, and then they will be searchable without any issues.
