SuccessFactors Recruiting Management (RCM)

Reproducing the Issue

Step 3. When you go to Candidate Search, you will not find the keyword tag or have the ability to search keywords in the resume or coverletter.

Problematic instance:

Expected Behaviour:

In your Candidate Profile template, either the resume field or coverLetter field is marked as sensitive="true."

This is what it looks like in Manage Templates:


Sample code setup:

 <field-definition id="resume" type="richText" required="true" custom="false" anonymize="true" sensitive="true">
 <field-definition id="coverLetter" type="richText" required="false" custom="false" anonymize="true" sensitive="true">


Edit the Candidate Profile and set both the resume field and coverLetter field to sensitive="false."
