2307719 - HiringManagerEmail data key is not populating the value - Onboarding


  • I want to add hiring manager's email id in the notification
  • I do not want the full name of the manager, i want to split the manager's name


  • Onboarding
  • ONB


Some of the few reason for non availability of value could be

  • If the data key is not available in the data dictionary(in Settings Tab) then the key will not populate the value.
  • Some times data keys like hiringmanageremailid is not defined in Onboarding, so we have to use other ways to populate the value


How to find whether we have the data key?

1) Go to Onboarding
2) Click on Settings tab
3) Click Data dictionary
4) Search for the data key
5) If the data key is not available then you can create it. Please get assistance from the support engineer to find the right key name(Data Keys are case sensitive)

I have created the key but the value is not populating:

Instead of using the data key, we can use the below construction to fetch the correct value. 

  • Hiring Manager email Id :  {user:HiringManager, objattr=email}
  • Hiring Manager FirstName: {user:HiringManager, objattr=firstname}
  • Hiring Manager LastName: {user:HiringManager, objattr=lastname}

 The objattr(Object attribute) will fetch the value from the user Hiringmanager.
