3095259 - Unable to mask dateOfBirth field in people profile


We have masked standard element dateOfBirth through manage business configuration however this field is still visible directly in people profile.


  • SAP SuccessFactors People Profile

Reproducing the Issue

1. Access manage business configuration
2. Select employee profile > standard element > DateOfBirth
3. Then set mask option Yes for DateOfBirth field
4. Navigate to people profile and the field DateOfBirth is not masked.


  • We have received confirmation from the product team that only text fields can be masked.
  • The dateOfBirth is a date field, so even if it is set as “Masked: Yes” in manage business configuration it will not take effect in the backend and it will not get masked.
  • Other text fields such as empId or ssn can be masked in people profile.
  • This is standard behavior as per design and if this feature is important then request you submit an enhancement request.
