  • Employee Central – Data Models

Reproducing the Issue

1. Instance Sync tool

2. Sync Data Model

3. Choose Target

4. Tick Override

5. Sync Failed

6. Open Job Response


The instance sync cannot map an element from a data model if the element doesn’t exist in the target DM

The target element must exist already, to use the instance sync tool to sync the DM element from source to target


When syncing the data model, make sure the elements(UI’s) are set to enabled yes in the target DM
