Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud
  • Employee Central

Cause

The special character / is not allowed within the Pay Scale Group name.

Resolution

  • In this scenario the client was importing Pay Scale Groups containing / in the name.
  • Not only is this not allowed, but in the actual database _ was being used instead.

For example the client was importing Prod/Test, when the database actually contained Prod_Test.
