2251385 - Employee Profile: “Field with ID X is required. Please provide a value.” error message


When trying to add a new record to a Trend Element portlet, the following error message is displayed:

 “Field with ID X is required. Please provide a value.”



SuccessFactors Employee Profile


This error message is displayed when a field is required for the Trend Information elements, but a value has not been provided for the field.


If you are able to see the field in the portlet: you should add a value for the field and try to save the portlet again.

If the indicated field is not visible or editable in the portlet: this means that the field is configured to be not visible or not editable. To resolve this issue, the indicated field should be configured (1) to be visible and editable or (2) to not be required. If the indicated field is either start-date, end-date or the rating field, the field should be mandatorily visible and required. Please refer to KBA 2218040 for more information on this.

To apply the required changes, you will need to go through a Configuration Change Request. For this, please complete the CCOR form attached to this KBA and contact SuccessFactors Cloud Product Support.
