This error happens when the competency ID doens't exist or the competency has no label added under the language which is the form template language.


Please make sure 1. The competency ID exists in instance.

Below is the XML element where you can find the competency ID 123 for example.


2. The competency has label added under the language which is the form template language.

For example, if the form template language is English US,  the English label must be added for the competency 123.

The form template language only can be checked via Form Template Administration tool in Provisioning. You can contact Support or Partner to check this information from provisioning.
