2393430 - Fields not configured in the data model are present in the CompoundEmployee API Response

Symptom

The field configured in the succession data model for the instance is removed later because of some business scenario.

But you still see this field in the CompoundEmployee API response.

Environment

Successfactors System

Cause

The field is deleted from the UI, but the data for the field is still present in the database for the same. Hence, it is returned in theCompoundEmployee response

Resolution

Please use the SFAPI parameter resultOptions = configuredOnlyFields in the CompoundEmployee API request to restrict the response only for the configured fields in the instance.

Example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
