2548247 - "The required attribute of the mapped standard elements "contactEmail" and "email" do not match." - Recruiting Management

Symptom

When pressing save in the Candidate Profile, this error results:

Warning: The required attribute of the mapped standard elements "contactEmail" and "email" do not match.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Cause

Candidate Profile field contactEmail has attribute required="true" while Succession Data Model (Employee Profile) email fields has attribute required="false" so code looks like this:


On Candidate Profile side:

  •  <field-definition id="contactEmail" type="text" required="true" custom="false" anonymize="false" sensitive="false">

On Succession Data Model:

  • <standard-element id="email" required="false" matrix-filter="false">

Resolution

To solve this issue, it's needed to update the required attribute to match both templates. That means that both templates should have either the attribute set as required="true" or required="false".

Please, notice that the error message you see might be a little bit different than the one described in this article, depending on what fields have the discrepancy in the "required" attribute. Please, see some examples below:

  • "The required attribute of the mapped standard elements "lastName" and "lastName" do not match."
  • "The required attribute of the mapped standard elements "firstName" and "firstName" do not match."
  • "The required attribute of the mapped standard elements "degree" and "degree" do not match."
