2444218 - Gender Talent Flag not appearing on Succession Org chart


I have configured Gender as a talent flag and it does not appear in the Succession org chart.


SuccessFactors Succession Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Succession > Succession Org Chart
  2. Search for a sample user
  3. Click on the display options and verify that gender is selected, but note that it is not showing on the Succession Org Chart.


Picklist must have been associated with Gender field like below which is not supported as data for Gender is picked from user data file.

<standard-element id="gender" max-length="2" required="true" matrix-filter="false">
    <picklist id="gender"/>


1. Remove Picklist id tag from standard element gender and re-import the data model

2. Instead of using integer number in the value section of the XML code in "Edit Org Chart Configuration", you need to use the value "M" and "F".

Example code:

<iconSetOption index="3" key="gender" target="both">
<label lang="en-US">Gender</label>
