Reproducing the Issue

  • Based on the prompt the issue is related to the BizX-pos field which is a field belonging to Goal Execution (GE).
  • Since the Goal Execution is involved, the first thing is to ensure the customer is using GE in Provisioning.


  • GE may not be enabled in provisioning and may be the root cause.


  • It is necessary to remove the configuration from the goal template and reimport it back into Provisioning.
  • Note: Removing just the columns in the import template will not resovle the issue as the Goal Template still contains the BizX-pos field.

          <field-definition id="bizx-pos" type="enum" required="false" detail="false" viewdefault="on" showlabel="false" field-show-coaching-advisor="false" cascade-update="rollup" show-allow-rollup-override="false" rollup-calc-type="avg">
           <field-label>Probability of Success</field-label>
           <field-description>Probability of Success</field-description>
           <enum-value value="1" style="background:red;color:black;">
           <enum-value value="2" style="background:yellow;color:black;">
           <enum-value value="3" style="background:green;color:white;">

  •  Download the updated Goal Template Header and re-import the failed record.
