Resolution

If filter or mfield ids are used in the Requisition XML, the Internal and External Applicant Search Settings must be configured before the Requisition XML can be uploaded into the instance. Among other things, these settings determine the labels and picklists used on filter fields and mfields.

If the instance contains multiple Requisition XML templates, the templates should use the same filter and mfield definitions, including the same field labels and picklists, to avoid conflicts between templates. If a filter or mfield is not used on a Requisition XML template it can be de-permissioned from all recruiting operators. All filters and mfields should be configured to be required, to avoid grey Application Error pop ups in the instance.

Since B1705 Release, the filters for career portals can be configured via Admin Center for permissioned users via the two methods below:

  1. For RBP sites, navigate to Admin CenterSet User Permissions Manage Permission RolesAdministrator Permission Manage Recruiting and enable Internal and External Career Search Settings.
  2. For non-RBP sites, navigate to Admin CenterManage Recruiting Administration and enable Internal and External Career Search Settings.

To configure internal and external search settings, navigate to Admin Center -> Recruiting Internal and External Career Search Settings:

Please do not remove or change the picklists associated to a filter or mfield. Candidate saved searches and job alerts that rely on that field configuration may cease to function if the configuration is changed

Career site search options:

Setting Behavior
Maximum number of fields displayed for each row Specifies how many fields are shown, left to right, in the search results before the information wraps to the next line
Maximum number of characters displayed for each field Specifies how many characters are shown before the data trails off into an ellipsis
Default sort by Column Specifies the field search results are sorted by when they are first returned. Candidates can select any other filter field to sort by if they wish
Visible (on standard fields) Specifies whether a standard field will show as a search option to candidates
Grid Order Specifies if a searchable field will also appear in the search results table and, if so, in what order (from left to right). Setting this field to zero causes it to be omitted from the search results table
Field Label Specifies the field label that will be seen in Requisition Details and the Career Site search options
Search Order Specifies whether a field will appear in the Career Site search options and, if so, in what order (from top to bottom). Setting this field to zero causes it to be omitted from the search options
Picklist ID Specifies to which picklist the field is associated. The picklist association in the Requisition XML is mostly ignored; the picklist association must be made in this spot in order for the Requisition XML to load correctly in Provisioning. The picklist association in the XML should exist in any case, to ensure proper reporting data.
Parent Picklist ID Specifies to which parent picklist the field is associated, if the field is a cascading (child) field. The picklist association in the Requisition XML is mostly ignored; the picklist association must be made in this spot in order for the Requisition XML to load correctly in Provisioning. The picklist association in the XML should exist in any case, to ensure proper reporting data.
Person to Display in Search Results internal site Specifies which, if any, operator should be listed as the contact person on the job posting for internal candidates conducting a job search. This option is not available for external candidates.
