Reproducing the Issue

  1. Home > Position Org Chart
  2. Search for position > Create Job Requisition > Create
  3. Error will occur 'Sorry, the requisition cannot be created. Creation of a job requisition for position failed. Details: The mapping field recruiter is entered in the rule to refer to the field usersSysid of OData object JobRequisitionOperator, but the object JobRequisitionOperator has no such field.'

Note: Operator is recruiter for this example.


1. Wrong data field specified in the business rule.

Common misspellings:
<operator>.userSysId     (it should be 'users' and not 'user'.)
<operator>.usersSysid    (it should be capital 'I'.)

The configuration of business rules is case sensitive and it should follow the Property Name according to OData API Data Dictionary.

  • Entity Name: JobRequisitionOperator
  • Property Name: usersSysId


2. Adding the word 'Name' after the operator role. 

For example:
recruiterName.usersSysId (it should be sourcer.usersSysId or recruiter.usersSysId)


  1. Check the rule configuration for the operator field.
  2. Change the field to usersSysId to resolve the issue.
  3. Remove 'Name' from the Requisition Field definition.
