2724839 - Country field for sm-mapping does not work- Recruiting Management


When creating the SM- Mapping to country field the information does not flow to Employee Profile.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create sm-mapping in the Candidate Profile Template
  2. Save candidate profile template
  3. Error: Picklist field country is mapped to a non picklist field.



This is a system limitation. You can not map a picklist field to a non picklist field.


Both country fields are standard fields in both candidate profile and Employee profile. In the employee profile the field type is a text and the candidate profile the field type will be a Picklist and that is  why the mapping of the field country is not supported.

If you feel as if this is important functionality for your business we encourage you to submit an enhancement request on our influence portal. Please check article 2090228 which explains how to submit such request.
