2735882 - Goal entity does not return the text of label field - Goal Management OData API

Symptom

You are trying to retrieve the Goal_XX data using APIs and for some fields the information is not being returned in the OData API response.

Environment

SuccessFactors Goal Management OData APIs

Reproducing the Issue

Run the OData query using the $select parameter

Resolution

When we have a combination of configured fields like code + label, we need to request both fields together in the $select criteria.

Examples:

If you run the query selecting only the field StoreLabel, you will not see the data in the response.

{
    "d": {
        "results": [
            {
                "__metadata": {
                    "uri": "https://api012.successfactors.eu/odata/v2/Goal_XX(1111L)",
                    "type": "SFOData.Goal_XX"
                },
                "id": "1111",
                "userId": "2222",
                "StoreLabel": ""
            }
        ]
    }
}

If you run the query selecting the field Store and StoreLabel, you will see the data in the response.

{
    "d": {
        "results": [
            {
                "__metadata": {
                    "uri": "https://api012.successfactors.eu/odata/v2/Goal_XX(1111L)",
                    "type": "SFOData.Goal_XX"
                },
                "id": "1111",
                "Store": "1",
                "userId": "2222",
                "StoreLabel": "MarketA"
            }
        ]
    }
}
