3336900 - Difference between XML template when comparing.


When comparing the XML templates between provisioning and manage templates we can see that the template is does not match exactly. 

  • Permissions order moved
  • Style added
  • Condensing of HTML in instruction fields. 


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management. 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Templates
  2. Make a small change to a template
  3. Select Versions 
  4. Download a version edited in Manage templates
  5. Download a version uploaded in Provisioning
  6. Compare 
  7. Other then the change made the system changes the order and adds styling in the XML template. 


Product management have confirmed this is current behaviour. When making changes to the XML templates using manage templates the system will save the order of permissions and styling differently compared to when the template is upload via provisioning. This is due to the layout provided in Manage templates. 

Please note: The difference will not have a impact on the user experience, other then the intended changes made in Manage templates at the time of editing.
