2086541 - Reports - No data showing in description column of report - Career Development

Symptom

  •  Unable to get data in the description column when running reports for Career Development Planning, Goal Plan, or Development Plan.
     
     
  • I cannot see any data in the description column of the report I ran about Career Development Plan and Goal Plan, although the field contains data in the user’s CDP or GP.

Environment

  • Career Development Planning

Cause

  • The custom field “description” does not contain the attribute reportable.

    Example:

    <field-definition id="description" type="textarea" required="false" detail="false" viewdefault="on" showlabel="false">

Resolution

  • It is most likely that the issues lays in the in the code itself.

    Indeed, in the XML file, we need to verify the field id:

    The standard field id will be “desc”.

    Example: <field-definition id="desc" type="textarea" required="false" viewdefault="on">.
     
     

  • The custom field id will be “description”.

     The standard field id is  reportable.

     The custom field id needs to contain the attribute reportable=”field1” in order to be reportable.

    Example:

    <field-definition id="description" type="textarea" required="false" detail="false" viewdefault="on" showlabel="false" reportable="field1">.
     
     

  • At the moment, 20 custom fields can be made throughout all the Goal Plan templates.

    The reportable fields must be the same from one template to another.
