Is it possible to map an Object field in the Position to a Picklist in the Job Requisition?
SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management
The official answer for this question is actually no, but with a custom solution that would be possible.
If by any chance you cannot have that field as an object as well on the Job Requisition, and must bring the values from an Object on the Position, the same concept of what is done when mapping legacy-mdf picklists can be applied to the rule. As the system doesn't know which picklist item is the equivalent from what you have on your object, you would need to "teach" that to the system, and to do that, we would need to provide the system a table for comparison. This table is called Lookup Table.
The lookup table is an object that will contain all the values from both sides, it would be something like this, for example:
|Id On Object||Id On Picklist|
And then when mapping the Object to the picklist, you would execute a Lookup looking at this table, passing what value do you have on the object, getting the equivalent value to the picklist and attribuiting to it.
We have a detailed article explaining this solution for picklists which can provide more information and help on adapting the approach: 2361220 - How to map Picklist fields in EC Position Management to RCM Integration with oData API - Recruiting Management
