Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an input file for Class connector.
  2. Ensure that you have additional custom column in the feed file (i.e. a column other than the standard 5 custom columns).
  3. Place the input file on SFTP.
  4. Schedule the Class connector.
  5. Check connector results and you will see the error message "com.plateausystems.connector.api.ConnectorException: Column does not exist: $ ARBITRARY_CUSTOM_COLUMN $ "


The Class connector supports only 5 standard custom fields .Since the feed file has additional custom column, this is causing the connector to throw the error.


The Class connector only supports the standard 5 custom columns and there is no configuration to change this.

Please see 2090228 to raise an enhancement request on changing the behavior.
