2409306 - Clarification on Boolean field behaviour

Symptom

  • Boolean fields can be configured as blank, FALSE or TRUE.
  • If the field is blank: in EP it is "no" ; in Ad hoc it is "blank" ; in User Directory it is "blank"
    If the field is FALSE: in EP it is "no" ; in Ad hoc it is "no" ; in User Directory it is "FALSE"
    If the field is TRUE: in EP it is "yes" ; in Ad hoc it is "yes" ; in User Directory it is "TRUE"
  • In ad hoc report you will find blank values for users, but in the Employee Profile the value displayed is "no".
  • Is it possible to change the behavior of the Boolean fields to be set to "FALSE" by default instead of being blank?

Environment

All SuccessFactors HCM Versions

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to Employee Profile/People Profile and check the boolean field (as example 'newToPosition' and 'matrixManaged') > It is diplayed as "No".
  • Go to Analytics/Adhoc Report using employee profile domain and here values are blank.
