2632183 - Adding fields to the custom filters section of the Data Model

Symptom

  • I am unable to add standard elements to the custom-filters section of the Data Model.
  • Can I add additional standard fields to the custom-filters section of the Succession Data Model?

Environment

SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Download the Succession Data Model from provisioning.
  2. Add additional standard fields to the custom-filters section (example <standard-element-ref refid="country"/>)
  3. Upload the updated Data Model.
  4. Download the Data Model and notice that the update did not save. 

Cause

 The only valid custom filters are custom fields: custom01 - custom15

Resolution

Custom-filters stores the list of fields to be used as custom filters.

  • The only valid custom filters are custom fields: custom01 - custom15
  • Currently there is no limit control on how many fields can be used.

Standard-elements like 'country' cannot be added to custom filter.

Only Department, Division and Location fields set as default filters.

Example of correct config:

<custom-filters>
<filter-module id="default">
<standard-element-ref refid="custom01"/>
<standard-element-ref refid="custom02"/>
<standard-element-ref refid="custom03"/>
<standard-element-ref refid="custom04"/>
<standard-element-ref refid="custom05"/>
<standard-element-ref refid="custom06"/>
.
.
.
</filter-module>
</custom-filters>
