Reproducing the Issue

You can use any standard, custom field or background element field as a display option. If you use a custom field, it must be made reportable in Provisioning and successfully synchronized; otherwise the display option content appears blank.


  1. Go to Provisioning -> Candidate Profile Template:

  2. Make sure you insert the additional column under <search-display-options-config> section in the Candidate Profile Template:

    For example:


    <column field-ref="resume" bge-ref="none" select-by-default="false" gridOrder="3">


    Additional information:
    field-ref: is the field-id which you want to add
    bge-ref: if the added field is a background element, then you should insert the background-element id otherwise set to “none”
    select-by-default: This can be set to true or false. If true, the end user conducting a search will not need to click the display options gear to add the data to their search results.
    gridOrder: The grid-order attribute determines the order of the fields in the search results table.

  3. Now in BizX you can enable the additional column: Click Display Options and select the new column which you want to add


  4. You will see the new column in the candidate search results
