2613544 - Required Custom List Field not validated in PM form

Symptom

Performance Management form can be sent to the next step even if required custom list field is left blank.

Environment

 SAP Success Factors Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

1. Create a performance management form with a custom list field.

2. Leave the "Custom Element's list's default value:" setting as zero (set automatically by the system).

3. Set the custom list field as a required field.

4. Launch the form.

5. Form can be sent to the next step even if the required list field is left blank.

Cause

The "Custom Element's list's default value" setting, when set to zero, will allow the form to be sent to the next step even if the required list field is left empty.

Resolution

When creating the custom list field, remove the 'zero' value from the "Custom Element's list's default value" setting and leave it blank - the list will still appear blank by default on the PM form.

This will stop the PM form from being sent to the next step without the required list field being filled.
