         Error: Missing required field: "FIELDNAME "for user USERNAME [USERID];


SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite


The employee record is missing the listed required field. The record cannot be loaded into the system until this field is updated. This message can be displayed on any field in the import log that is marked "Required" in the system.

To review a list of required fields and/or to change required settings for your account (this is customized according to client needs) please contact customer support.


The missing data field needs to be populated for the employee's record. Once updated, the file will need to be loaded again into the system.

Additional Information:

           PLEASE NOTE: If you are updating this manually and normally have an automated import from your HRIS system, you will need to make sure the HRIS system has the correct information as well.
