3212306 - ODATA API : Picklist Values not returning in Chinese/Japanese etc locale


Picklist value configured in Japanese/any other languages doesn't return its value in Japanese even when field filtered by Locale "ja_JP" etc


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite 
    • Integrations
      • API and Adhoc API Framework

    Reproducing the Issue

    1. Configure a picklist in any specific language/locale(eg. Japanese)
    2. Fetch this picklist value via an API
    3. Value returned is not in required set language(eg. Japanese)


    • Language Pack is not enabled correctly.


    • Check whether the language pack feature is enabled for the company for impacted language.
    • If enabled but issue persists, follow below steps:

      > Disable Japanese locale in provisioning 

      > Enable the language again


    NOTE: Disable/enable locale in company settings should have no impact. This should resolve the issue with Japanese Language. Follow same steps for issue with any other language.
