3220969 - How to disable a field from the CompoundEmployee response


You wish to find out how to disable a field from the CompoundEmployee API. 


SAP SuccessFactors SFAPI
SAP SuccessFactors CompoundEmployee

Reproducing the Issue

  • Disable a field in the Manage Business Configuration
  • Run API operation e.g. query
  • Field is still displayed in the CE API response


Expected behaviour


CompoundEmployee API renders also disabled fields if a value is stored on the database. This can be changed by using parameter resultOptions=configuredFieldsOnly like described in the Guide however it is important to note that this will have an effect on all fields, there is no possibility to hide single fields.
