2481625 - Manage Templates - On accessing the Job requisition template under Recruiting Tab- an application error occured


When trying to open the template it will throw an application error with the following fingerprint:



SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Admin center
  2. Manage templates
  3. Recruiting management
  4. Job requisition
  5. Error received


On retrieving the logs and if you see there is an exception saying "java.lang.ClassCastException: Cannot cast class java.lang.Double to class java.lang.String"

It is most likely to be the wrong configuration in the XML template defined.


The misconfiguration might be the standard field is not following the Data Type it should.

It is always good to verify if all the Standard fields are of the same Data type defined in the Configuration guide.

There was another scenario that the field "numberOpenings" was a having the <default-value> tag defined which was also causing the issue

Removing the <default value > tag has solved the issue.
