2920699 - Is it possible to use rules to get the Label from a picklist and add to a text field - RCM

Symptom

Is it possible to get the Label from a picklist to place it into a Text field in Recruiting Management?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Resolution

Nativelly using rules this is not possible, as the system does not have the label field available to be used on the Rules.

One possibleway to accomplish that might be by using a Lookup table, following the same principle that we have for mapping picklists in between modules. Now instead of creating a Lookup table that stores the ExternalCode and the OptionID, we create one that stores the ExternalCode and the Label, so we will have the association in between the values.

The downside wit this approach is that you will be required to create records for each value on the picklist and if you have multiple languages you will have to create even more objects.

In case that is still the option you would like to go for, check the article that has the steps on how to create a Lookup table and adapt to your scenario: 2361220 - How to map Picklist fields in EC Position Management to RCM Integration with oData API - Recruiting Management
