According to the SFAPI and OData guides, for both the Manager and Custom Manager hierarcies, the individual at the top of the employee hierarchy (e.g. CEO) must have the value of “NO_MANAGER” (in all caps) listed in the managerExternalId field so that the system knows how to treat this individual in the routing chain.

This value must be exactly NO_MANAGER. Other values, such as NO_MGR will fail.
