2858701 - Q4 1911 - Data Subject Information Report shows picklist labels

Symptom

  • Why are the optionIDs of the picklist shown in the data subject information report?
  • How do we get the data subject report to show the picklist labels instead of the optionID? 

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

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. From Admin Center search "data subject information"
  2. Select "Person Search"
  3. Choose a person and a language then click "Generate Report"
  4. Go to the "Reports" Tab of data subject information and download the report in either PDF or Excel.
  5. Upon opening you will see that some of the data was being displayed as OptionID numbers and not the corresponding picklist label. 

Cause

Up until the 1911 release it was expected behaviour that the picklist values in the data subject report where displayed only as their OptionIDs. Examples from 1908 test demo below:
