2878315 - Provinces/States ISO Code not being displayed in RMK - Recruiting Marketing


Provinces and States are being displayed as the full name instead of the ISO Code in RMK site.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management
    • Location Foundation Object

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access RMK site
  2. Click on "Search Jobs"
  3. You will see the provinces/states of jobs posted are being displayed as full name instead of ISO Code


A possible cause is the picklist for those Provinces or States not matching with RMK mappings for Location.


Correct the picklist according to the following:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Picklist Center
  2. Search for the picklist linked to the state/province field of the object (that can be checked in Provisioning > Import/Export Country/Region Specific XML for Corporate Data Model)
  3. Adjust the labels and the external codes of the provinces according to ISO-3166 values.

Please find below an example of the correct values for Canada Provinces:

    • Alberta
    • British Columbia (Colombie-Britannique)
    • Manitoba
    • New Brunswick (Nouveau-Brunswick)
    • Newfoundland and Labrador
    • Northwest Territories (Territoires du Nord-Ouest)
    • Nova Scotia (Nouvelle-Écosse)
    • Nunavut
    • Ontario
    • Prince Edward Island (Île-du-Prince-Édouard)
    • Quebec (Québec)
    • Saskatchewan
    • Yukon Territory (Teritoire du Yukon)
