3374296 - dateFormat of date type custom field always returns "yyyy-MM-dd" in API query irrespective of instance locale - Performance Management


When value is filled in the date type custom field, its dateFormat in API query always returns "yyyy-MM-dd" irrespective of instance locale. However, when value is not filled in the field, its dateFormat in API query changes with instance locale. e.g. When in US "dateFormat": "MM/dd/yyyy", JP "dateFormat": "yyyy/MM/dd".


SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals


This is a known issue in b2305.


The expected behavior is that when value is filled in the date type custom field, the returned dateFormat in API query will also match the instance locale.

The fix for this issue is planned to be deployed on 2H 2023 release (b2311). For release timelines, please review SAP SuccessFactors Product Release & Road Map Information
