ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

HCM Recruiting provides a BI Publisher report to generate application details report.

Here the resume attachments are converted to PDF using OIT [Oracle Outside In Technology] and appended to application details output.

While converting the attached PDF resume the final PDF output can be produced with overlapping text, unexpected spaces in the middle of a line, or special characters.

These situations can occur in the following scenarios:

1. Attached resume has CID type fonts.
2. Resume has Left-Right Justification
3. Fonts embedded in attached resume are not available in PeopleSoft Application Server or Process Scheduler.

 

REPLICATION STEPS
