The mapping was build incorrectly for the country mapping.


Please make sure that the following configurations are correct.

  • In RCM requisition XML, the field "country" is defined as type "derived".
  • In Position object definition, the concerned field is defined as a Generic Object.
  • In Position object definition, the field's Valid Value Source is "Country".
  • In Manage Data, the specific "Country" value (for example, India) is defined properly.
  • In Manage Data, the position has correct value for this field.
  • The mapping rule (under Admin Centre -> Position Management Settings -> Rule for Mapping Fields Between Position and Job Requisition) sould look like the following:
