2494926 - Create Requisition via Position Org Chart Error: Details: jobCode invalid, with the index 0


Cannot create requisition via position org chart consistently if Job Code is mapped in the RCM to EC mapping rule:

Sorry, the requisition cannot be created. Creation of a job requisition for position failed. Details: jobCode invalid, with the index 0.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to instance
  2. Go to Company Info > On Company Info, select Position Org Chart Tab.
  3. Select a Position > Click on the three horizontal stripes in Position and select 'Create a Requisition'.
  4. Pop up window and select an active Job Requisition Template > Click create > Application error appears.


  • Job Req validates the fields referring to GO/FO with the values that exist in users_sys_info for this field.
  • So you can only use values that are stored in users_sys_info.
  • You can also create a req manually and check which values appear in the dropdown of the jobReq field.
  • The values from the mapping rule must return in this format.
