SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central


Above warning message will get displayed in following scenario

  • If the country of the record being imported is other than USA(in above example) and still values are populated for those fields manually on the template 
  • or if values get populated via  Business Rules or via HRIS Propagation 
  • or the user has a different country(USA in above example) in any of the previous job history record and is still getting propagated via &&NO_OVERWRITE&& token
  • or if there is any country specific BOOLEAN fields  

The warning basically means that value is provided for the fields which do not make sense for the country for which the user on the record belongs to and hence the values provided for these fields would be ignored and stored as NULL.


Make sure that system is not setting values to the country specific fields which is not belonging to the user. This can be done by checking the above mentioned configurations in the Cause section.
