2082147 - ISO Countries for Candidate Profile - Recruiting / Country in Candidate profile doesn't save and shows "No Selection"


  • I try to save country on the Candidate Profile, but the value from the drop down doesn't save and changes to "No Selection" instead
  • What is the correct value of the picklist linked to the country field in the candidate profile?


  • In the candidate profile the country field must be defined as picklist.

  <field-definition id="country" type="picklist" required="true" custom="false" anonymize="false">




  • Do not use picklist id “ISOCountryList” because this is reserved for Employee Central.
  • The system is checking the en_US text in the picklist and this must match exactly what is defined by the iso (note: this can be even different from the text in ISOCountryList).
  • A list of correct values can be found in the attached csv: it is recommended to make a copy and paste.
  • Using a wrong text in the en_US will lead to the following error: when a country with the wrong text is selected and the profile is saved, the value will be set again to “No selection”.
