Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Ad-hoc reporting
  2. Select single domain - Recruiting V2
  3. Select some columns from Job Application 


To enhance the performance of Recruting V2 adhoc reports, you can no longer use the Run Online option for the columns marked as complex as decribed in our guides.


SAP SuccessFactors Adhoc Reporting has implemented guardrails to allow for optimal experience when running reports. These guardrails surface user-friendly messages to assist managing report execution load and to avoid time-outs. Whenever you run a report with the complex columns the report will run only offline.
