Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login via BizX (integrated login)
  2. Go to Learning


Before a refresh activity, the BizX configuration file in the Target instance is incorrect even though integration appears working.


  1. Correct the integration of BizX and LMS by updating the BizX configuration file in LMS Admin.
  • Go to Admin > System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > Edit Bizx
  • Search for "successFactorsCompanyID=" and change it to successFactorsCompanyID=<target company ID>

Example: from successFactorsCompanyID=testProd to successFactorsCompanyID=testStage

  1. Search for "baseURL" settings and change it to baseURL=<Target URL>

Example: From baseURL= to baseURL=

  1. Search for "metadataProviders[IDP1].value=" and update the url to point target companyID

Example: metadataProviders[IDP1].value=<bizX target URL>/idp/samlmetadata?company=<target company ID>
NOTE: This IDP URL left-side configuration may be malformed but working; however will casue issues post-refresh if incorrect, review brackets & periods used in teh default setting.
