3382836 - Advanced rule with "NOT" or "-" not working in category pageS - Recruiting Marketing


Advanced rule with "NOT" or "-" shows different posting jobs in Test Rule page and RMK category page.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing
  • Career Site Builder 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. CSB > Pages > Category > create a category
  2. Advanced Rules Editor
  3. Create a rule with simple "NOT" or "-"
    e.g. NOT zip: "XXX" or -zip: "XXX"
  4. Click on "Test Rule" button to check the posting job number
  5. See in RMK category page, the posting job number is not matching which shows in "Test Rule" page


It's a current system limitation.

Instead of using an advanced rule consisting of just 'NOT', use an additional term before the NOT. 
For example, either of the following works:
joblocale: en_US AND NOT zip: "XXX"
joblocale: en_US AND -zip: "XXX"

The reason for this requested configuration change is that it is a limitation of the search technology, called lucene.
It does not support searches that consist only of a 'NOT' search.
