2377270 - Configuring country with the template type job-req in the Offer Detail Template - Recruiting Management

Symptom

  • If I use a 'derived' type for the "country" field definition and template type "job-req" in the Offer Detail template the country is not populating;

e.g.:

<field-definition id="country" type="derived" required="true" custom="false" template-type="job-req" anonymize="false">
<field-label><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-label lang="en_GB"><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-label lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-description><![CDATA[]]></field-description>
</field-definition>

 

 

  • If I use an 'enum' type  for the "country" field definition and template type "job-req" in the Offer Detail template the country populates with the two characted country code, but disappears when the Offer is sent for approval;

e.g.:

<field-definition id="country" type="enum" required="true" custom="false" template-type="job-req" anonymize="false">
<field-label><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-label lang="en_GB"><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-label lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-description><![CDATA[]]></field-description>
</field-definition>

Environment

Recruiting Management

Cause

The country is not supported as derived field

Resolution

In order to define country in the Offer Detail template populating information from the standard country field in the Job requisition and ensure no functionality loss, you have to define "country" with the "picklist" type in the Offer Detail template (the country in the job requisition template has to remain a "derived" field type).

 

An example of a correct configuration in the Offer Detail template:

<field-definition id="country" type="picklist" required="true" custom="false" template-type="job-req" anonymize="false">
<field-label><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-label lang="en_GB"><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-label lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Country]]></field-label>
<field-description><![CDATA[]]></field-description>
<picklist-id>country</picklist-id>
</field-definition>
