2499119 - HTML Formatting within Field Label is not Rendered Properly in Recruiting

Symptom

HTML Codes added to the Field Labes within Recruiting Module are not Rendered Properly. Instead, the HTML Code is displayed in Candidate Profile, Application and/or Job Requisition.

Environment

SuccessFactors Recruiting Management - All Versions

Reproducing the Issue

  • Configure fields in the Job Requisition, Application, Offer Approval or Candidate Profile with HTML Codes added to the Field Label

Example: 

<field-definition id="country" type="picklist" required="true" custom="false" anonymize="false">
<field-label mime-type="text-plain"><![CDATA[Country ]]></field-label>
<field-label mime-type="text-html" lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Country: <br><b><i>html test</i></b>]]></field-label>
<field-description><![CDATA[Country ]]></field-description>
<picklist-id>country</picklist-id>
</field-definition>

Cause

HTML is only supported in instructional texts as long as the mime-type attribute is set to text-html. HTML tags are not supported to be used in the label descriptions.
