 Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

SuccessFactors BizX - all versions.

Cause

This is an expected behavior if the ''MDF system field in API Mode" as "Removed from all MDF entities" in provisioning, in that case, no matter API subversion is set to v1.0 or v1.1, MDF OData will hide the technical fields in metadata.

Resolution

Depending on the provisioning settings of your company, the system fields may be:

  • Removed from all MDF entities regardless of the API Sub Version field setting in the MDF object definition
  • Kept for all MDF entities regardless of the API Sub Version field setting in the MDF object definition
  • Dependent on the API Sub Version field setting of the MDF object definition
