2869992 - Prefix/Middle name not appearing on the candidate pipeline


Both internal & external candidates with middle names are not appearing in full on the candidate pipeline. Their first name and last name is all that appears.

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

Reproducing the Issue


  1. Create a candidate with a first name, middle name and last name.
  2. Apply to a job requisition.
  3. See that the middle name doesn't appear on the candidate pipeline.
  4. When you click into the candidates application, you can see all three fields though.


At the moment this is considered an expected behavior within the Product. The name that appears in the Candidate pipeline will come from the name created in the original candidate profile.
