An onInit business rule was configured to hide fields "Name in Alternate Language" fields under "Name Information" during new hire process. However, the fields are not hidden and still displayed.

The rule looks correct as followed from KBA 2080655 - How to hide fields in the Add New Employee wizard.

Reproducing the Issue

1. Navigate to Admin Center > Manage Business Configuration > personalInfo element > Assign the created rule as onInit having Employment Information Model as Base Object.

(Follow KBA 2080655 - How to hide fields in the Add New Employee wizard)

2. Go to Add New Employee wizard.

3. Enter the required fields. Check if the fields under Name Information > Name in Alternate Language in are hidden.

Result: First Name and Last Name under "Name in Alternate Language" are still visible.


This is an expected behavior. As per current functionality, we cannot hide fields within the identity / Name Information section of Add New Employee wizard via rule.


Since this is not yet supported, customers can submit an Enhancement Request instead.
