How to configure GO/FO fields in the Job requisition template?

Job Requisition

 The Job Requisition was enhanced to support fields of type GO/FO (both standard and custom). Six new standard GO/FO fields were also introduced.  They are:

  • Legal Entity (Company) --> name of standard field 
  • Business Unit
  • Division
  • Department
  • Cost Center
  • Location

Job Requisition template

The GO/FO fields can be defined in the Job Requisition template as follows

<field-definition id="Department_obj"type = "object" object-type="Department" required="false" custom="false">

  • id --> Is the name of the standard GO/FO field. It is case sensitive.
  • type --> If defined will always have the value "object". This tag is optional for six standard GO/FO fields.
  • object-type --> Will be the name of the GO/FO. Defining a wrong GO/FO to the standard field will not be supported. Eg, the standard field Department_obj should be of type Department. No other type will be allowed.
  • custom (OPTIONAL) --> If defined it should always be FALSE.

 

The Job Requisition template would be enhanced to support GO/FO fields as both standard and custom fields. The GO/FO should be ACTIVE.

  • Field id is case sensitive on the template

Standard GO/FO Fields

For standard fields the naming convention would be to use the name of GO along with the suffix "_obj". A standard field Division on the template would be defined as follows

<field-definition id="Department_obj"type = "object" object-type="Department" required="false" custom="false">

  • id --> Is the name of the standard field. It is case sensitive.
  • type --> If defined will always have the value "object". This tag is optional for the 6 standard fields
  • object-type --> Will be the name of the GO/FO. Defining a wrong GO/FO to the standard field will not be supported. Eg, the standard field Department_obj should be of type Department. No other type will be allowed.
  • custom (OPTIONAL) --> If defined it should always be FALSE.

Custom GO/FO Fields

For custom fields there are no naming conventions. A custom field can be defined as follows

<field-definition id="custom_dept" type = "object" object-type="Department" required="false" custom="true">

  • field-definition id --> Is the name of the custom field. It is case sensitive.
  • type  --> will always have the value "object"
  • object-type --> Will be the name of the ACTIVE GO/FO. This can be either a standard (GO/FO) or custom (GO/FO) object. Defining a non existent GO/FO will not be supported to the standard field will not be supported. INACTIVE objects will not be supported.
  • custom (OPTIONAL) --> If defined it should be true in this case.

Note: If the same custom field has been defined in different job requisition templates with different types or object-types, a WARNING message is shown to the user while saving the template.
