3391897 - Custom MDF's externalcode data type set as auto number and not available in mdf block type - Onboarding


When a MDF custom object is set as autonumber this is not available in the MDF Block Ui on Hire Template 


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Set the data type of this externalcode of this MDF as auto number
  2. Manage data
  3. Search hire template
  4. Choose the custom MDF object
  5. Edit
  6. Search the MDF in MDF BLOCK type: no result


Custom objects used in Custom Data Collection have external code as auto number whereas in the case of custom MDF objects used in Configurable New Hire, have an external code as User. 


This is the expected behavior. The custom MDF objects used in Configurable New Hire need to have the external code as "user".
