  2. Event Reason is configured as:



This issue is because there is no 'Employee Status' value for the employee's Job Information:



  • Perform a Full Purge import of the HOST Job Info record, ensuring that the Start Global Assignment Event Reason that is specified is using the correct Event (Start Global Assignment) and Employee Status (Active) (refer to Global Assignments Hanbook for more information - the important part is the External Code value is as per defined in the handbook)
  • Proceed to delete the Global Assignment of the employee via the MSS UI (Take Action > End/Delete Gobal Assignment)

For more information regarding Global Assignments, please refer to the handbook.
