2835017 - Application Error When Rehiring an Employee via Employee Central


An Application Error appears when rehiring an Employee.

  • Caused by: com.successfactors.db.dao.DAOException: HibernateException thrown could not insert: [com.successfactors.hris.bean.eo.PersonGlobalInfoEO]
  • Caused by: org.hibernate.exception.ConstraintViolationException: could not insert: [com.successfactors.hris.bean.eo.PersonGlobalInfoEO]
  • Caused by: [301]: unique constraint violated: Table(PER_PERSON_INFO_GBL_T), Index(UC_PER_PERSON_INFO_GBL_KEY)


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • Hire/Rehire
  • Global Information

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Rehire Inactive Employees.
  2. Select an Employee to Rehire.
  3. An Application Error appears upon saving the hire.


  • This is a data issue. In some cases, this is caused by a duplicate Country under Global Information Section.
  • Notice there are two sections loaded for Global Information and the Country selected for both Sections are the same.


  • Remove the duplicate Global Information Section and leave only one.
  • The Rehire should be successful after removing the duplicate Section.
