3373668 - Picklist Label is not displayed in the fields when selected from the dropdown


When trying to add the value to the field from the picklist dropdown, the label is not displayed.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Employee Profile.
  2. Edit any portlet, let's say personal information.
  3. Select the value from the picklist dropdown for the field.
  4. The value is not displayed.


This is due to incorrect language setting in Provisioning under Company Settings > Default Language.


  • The Default Language that is selected in the provisioning was not enabled in the Admin Center > Manage Languages Tool.
  • This is not a valid setting and must be changed, otherwise, the system can behave unexpectedly (like with picklist labels not being shown).
