3217820 - Fields not configured in Data Model appear in Address Information - UI and Import Template


  • Some of the fields on the Address Information Portlet are not configured on Data model but they appear on the Address Information UI and the Import Template
  • These fields also appear on the Configure People Profile tool for Address Info portlet. How to disable this?
  • Some of these fields are :
    • Notes
    • Province
    • State

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Address Information portlet and notice these fields being displayed.
  2. These fields are also displayed on the Download Template UI under Import Employee Data but they are not configured on the Data model


This is because its default visibility is "both" for these fields by design


Please add this field explicitly for homeAddress element in the data model with visibility =none, that should fix the issue.
