Problems Profile Matchup TalentPlanning STVN2.1 .NET


we are on TalentPlanning SP1 for STVN2.1 .NET.

When I perform the search in the profile matchup window in the SuccessionPlanning sub-component, I do not get a table of results. Instead I only get the number of found items and, if sth is found, three entries in the colours green, yellow and red.

The log file contains a lot of entries like the following:

"WARNING: convertStringToDate : No date is specified to convert."

"Profile Matching" is enabled in Application-wide settings in the administrator console.

The same search in the JAVA version works correctly, so this does not seem to be an issue related to SAP backend or TREX.

Has anyone faced a similar issue yet?

Kind regards

I assume that you are reading data from a German or a foreign language SAP back end or application server, that doesnu2019t use u2018.u2019 as decimal point. To my understanding, some European countries uses u2018,u2019 commas as decimal point. Thatu2019s why the texts are not showing in the profile matchup. You will need to follow the instructions below:

1-Open Web.config in a text editor

2-Search for line that contains <Globalization u2026..

3-It should look like this

<globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" />

4-Just add the culture and uiCulture into it.

<globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" culture="en-US" uiCulture="en-US" />

5-Save and reload application.

Thanks and good luck!!
