2467637 - Performance issues with job requisition API's

Symptom

The Customer runs a query to fetch details from any one of the RCM Entities and it is taking Much longer time to fetch  the details.

Environment

SuccessFactors Bizx - Recruiting

Cause

System behavior with respect to the Query the customer executes, if the entity has more number of Custom fields

Resolution

 For Eg , the customer runs the query

https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/odata/v2/JobRequisition?$top=30&$expand=jobApplications

Where it is expected to fetch the first 30 entities from the instance and this will take longer time if the Application/jobrequisition has more number of custom fields.

The query is expected to parse the value for the custom field as well  and will fetch it back. This will take moretime when compared to Standard fields.

It is always advised to optimize the query only to select the field you would like to fetch , instead of all the fields

Something similar to  this "https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/odata/v2/JobRequisition?$top=30&$format=json&$expand=jobApplications&$select=jobApplications/applicationId".
