2642533 - LMS: Cannot specify a NULL Key value for reference entity REV_DTE in Item Connector


Item Connector error message: "Cannot specify a NULL Key value for reference entity REV_DTE"


SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Run item connector with a file having REV_DTE field blank.
  2. Error will be encountered.


Following is the setting in CONNECTOR configuration file.


  • Setting this to 'N' makes REV_DTE field mandatory.
  • Setting this to 'Y' uses the current timestamp as REV_DTE.


You have two options:

  1. Set 'item.connector.defaultRevDate.currentTimestamp' to 'Y'; or
  2. Populate the REV_DTE field.
