3492975 - Job Information Boolean Fields Are Updated With Value Even Though They Are Disabled


The below Job Information Boolean fields are being updated with values even though they are disabled in the data model, when hiring new employee, or on insert of records in job information.



SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: Job information

Reproducing the Issue

Scenario 1

  1. The field is configured in the data model, but not visible by RBP permissions.
  2. Insert a new record in Job Information via UI or via import.
  3. The value is set as "f" (if the field(s) had null value earlier)

Scenario 2

  1. The field is not configured in the data model.
  2. Hire a new employee or add a contingent worker.
  3. Value is defaulted to "f" even though the field(s) are not configured.


This is a defect.


  • This defect has been fixed with 1H 2024 release.
  • After the fix, the behavior is as follows:
    • Insert new record via UI or import: value is copied over from previous record (null, f, t) independent of the field being configured in the data model.
    • Hire scenarios: value is set to 'null' if the field is not configured in data model.
