Symptom

Business Rule on Offer Detail page to convert text to number "Function: To Number()" is not working when field is coming from Job Application.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

Example of rule:

The Business Rule should take the value from a Standalone Text Field in the Offer Detail and convert to a Number value, then put it on a Number Field , which comes from the Job Application however, the rule does not work and instead, it clears out the value from the Job Application field.

Cause

This is a known issue already acknowledged by Software Engineering team. The Integer and Float type values were not handled in the offer property resolver.

Resolution

This limitation will be fixed within H2 2021 release.

Currently, there's no workaround using the rule. The value will need to be convert manually.
