2795989 - b1905 - Errors when importing job information - "You cannot import job information records with leave of absence..."


As of 1905 it is possible to update LOA records as long as you are not changing the fields: Effective start date, event, event reason, expected return date

This behavior is documented in the below KBA:

2675637 - b1905 - Enable Leave of Absence Editing Switch behaviour

If you are going to the Job History UI and making a change to a job info record it works as expected, however, if you try to perform the same change via job history import than you receive the following error message:

"You cannot import job information records with leave of absence or return to work event reasons using the Job History import in case Time Off with LOA is active. Please use the Time Off import from Import Export data in admin Center for importing data related to leave of absence."
