2238191 - Alternate Name Fields for Alternate languages have incorrect labels

Symptom

After modifying the labels for first-name-alt1, or other alternate name fiels, the labels do not display correctly

 

 

Environment

  • SuccessFactors HCM Suite 1508

Reproducing the Issue

Modify the Label for first-name-alt using datamodel changes or using MDF "Manage Business Configuration tool".

Example:

Example: 

hris-field "first-name-alt1" as "Legal First Name"
hris-field "middle-name-alt1" as "Legal Middle Name"
hris-field "last-name-alt1" as "Legal Last Name"

Navigate to:

  1. "Personal Information" portlet -> edit
  2. Select: Show Alternate Language 

These field labels will still be displayed as "First Name", "Middle Name" and "Last Name"

Cause

This is the expected behavior and here is the behavior of Alternate Name fields:

The Order and Label of alt field is inherited from the parent field, i.e. First Name, Middle Name, Last Name.
Modification of the order or Label of these alternate fields in the datamodel or MDF is ignored.

Resolution

This is expected behavior.

As a workaround, the parent field labels (Example: First Name) can be modified and the change will be reflected to the corresponding Altername Name field.
