3223689 - Maintaining a picklist value for country in Manage Templates causes the error - Warning: Picklist id for "country" should be set to "country"


When updating the field country you receive the following error message:

Warning: Picklist id for "country" should be set to "country"


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Templates
  2. Select Recruiting Management
  3. Select Candidate Profile
  4. Edit Fields by selecting ## Fields defined. Click to modify.
  5. Make an edit and save
  6. Error received: Warning: Picklist id for "country" should be set to "country"


Picklist maintained for country has a spelling mistake or space added.

Example where the space is present from the XML of a template:

  <field-definition id="country" type="picklist" required="false" custom="false" anonymize="false" sensitive="false">
  <field-label mime-type="text-plain"><![CDATA[Country of Residence]]></field-label>
  <field-label mime-type="text-plain" lang="en_GB"><![CDATA[Country of Residence]]></field-label>
  <field-label mime-type="text-plain" lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Country of Residence]]></field-label>
  <field-description lang="en_GB"><![CDATA[country]]></field-description>
  <field-description lang="en_US"><![CDATA[country]]></field-description>
    <picklist-id> country</picklist-id>


Correct the picklist option selected by removing the spelling mistake, preceding space, or ending space.
