Reproducing the Issue

  1. Download the Succession Data Model;
  2. Add the <standard-element-ref refid="userId"/> listed under <edit-template id="sysVisibleUserDirectorySetting">;

   3. Go to Manage Business Configuration > jobInfo > Add the User ID;

 4. Go to the People Profile of any user and you can't find the field in the Job Information Portlet.


Standard Elements are only displayed in the Live Profile User Information block (USERINFO_BLOCK).


If you want a Standard Element to be displayed, you will need to configure it under a USERINFO_BLOCK after enabling it in the respective BCUI tab.
