2891760 - Issue to sync Recruiters - Error message getPersonUUID


Some recruiters are not getting synchronized between RCM and RMK. The configuration is correct and some users syncing normally, but others are getting ignored and Export Automated Process Logs, in Command Center v2, shows the following message:

            <result-msg>NullPointerException: while trying to invoke the method java.lang.String.equals(java.lang.Object) of a null object returned from com.jobs2web.users.utils.recruitersync.AtsRecruiterWithPersonUuid.getPersonUUID()</result-msg>

Reproducing the Issue

  • After the Recruiter sync is completed, some recruiters with the correct permissions are not getting created on the RMK side and therefore cannot access the Career Site Builder.
  • The configuration is correct and other users syncing as expected.


  • This error is linked to a missing value on their Employee Profile, the unique immutable ID or perpersonUUID.
    • You can read more about it on this EC KBA: 2504068
  • While this value is not related to RMK, the Recruiter sync will fail for users who don't have it on their profile.


  • A Provisioning job needs to be run once, either by an implementation partner or by support. You will find Manage Scheduled Jobs The job is called 'Initialize per person immutable id' :

  • Don't schedule the job, simply run it once (Run It Now option). Once it's completed, the next Recruiter sync will not show the error anymore and all the users should appear in Command Center.
