2088061 - Data Model: VisibleUserDirectorySetting Controlling Field Visibility - Platform


  • When the client runs an Employee Export, the file does not display the some fields. How do we make these fields appear?


  • BizX Platform


  • If you have recently added fields to your data model but these are not included in your employee export you most likely need to define the fields in your data model in the sysVisibleUserDirectorySetting section.
    For example: You have just added custom fields CUSTOM12 and CUSTOM13 to your data model.
  • The likely reason that you do not see the fields in your employee export, is that the fields have not been defined in the sysVisibleUserDirectorySetting in the your data model.  


Example of the code without custom fields 12 & 13 added to this section.
