After an Application Purging, all the picklists values appear in the report as "-99999", for other fields it appears the text "Anonymized"
SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management
Reproducing the Issue
- Run an AdHoc report selecting all the fields from Application
- Check the report generated and focus on the anonimyzed applications,
- all the columns related to Picklists show "-99999" when other columns show the text "Anonymized"
This behavior is normal and it represent method used by the system to purge a picklist, some clarifications on the reasons:
Before the purging the system stores in the database the Option ID of that picklist.
During the purging the system should remove the old optionID but it must keep a number, that number cannot be another OptionID in the setting, then the value "-99999" fulfill this purpose without the risk to generate inconsistencies.
This is the expected behaviour.
