2823028 - Deleted Candidate Profile is Showing up in Search - Recruiting Management


After Candidate Profile is deleted or anonymized, the profile is still available in the Candidate Search


SAP SucessFactors Recruiting Management

  • Candidate Profile 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting > Candidate Search
  2. Search for the anonymized profile 
  3. Profile is still found


After the Candidate Profile is anonymized and deleted, the index remains available in the Solr database and therefore, it can still be searchable.


Note the deletion of the Candidate Profile might take some time to reflect in the system. The profile will still be searchable for some time after deletion. If the issue persists though, please contact Support to get the data analyzed and the index deleted from Solr.
