2422093 - Position import is successful with wrong value of Location


On importing position, the system doesn't validate the value of location when association is configured between Position(GO) and Location(FO).


Successfactors - Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

1. Associate Position(GO) with Location (FO)

2. Download the position import template

3. Enter an invalid value for Location column.

4. Validate and Import.

5. Import is successful but expected behaviour is that the system should show an error that Location doesn't exist.



This is currently a limitation.
