2409912 - What Values are Supported in the "technicalParameters" Field to trigger a Position to Job Information Sync


When preparing a Position Import file, what values are supported in the "technicalParameters" field to trigger a Position to Job Info Sync?

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central


The word "SYNC" is the required input, to trigger a Position to Job Information Sync on a position import.


The coding has been improved to tolerant.

A space can now be included before or after the word SYNC, along with a lowercase sync: (accept "SYNC", "SYNC ", " SYNC", "sync").

Please Note:

  • The sync from position to job info is currently only supported on position imports via CSV.
  • By standard, the Position to Job Information Sync is not triggered on Position Imports from OData/API - please refer to the Implementation Guide for more details about this topic.

    Workaround: To use this via imports or OData/API, the field Technical Parameter (technicalParameters field under Admin center > COD) can be changed to editable and evaluate to hide this field using RBP. Then, the "SYNC" value can be sent to the field in the CSV or OData/API payloads, too. However, please bare in mind that there are no guarantees this workaround will continue working in future releasesand that SAP Support team cannot provide assistance in this  consulting/implementation as it is a workaround, not the standard/recommended system configuration. Please evaluate the risks and impacts before implementing it.
