Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select the Overview.
  3. Search for the Activity Migration Of Employee Data.

There could be two possible causes for this error:

Cause 1: The hire date of the employee is not within the validity period of the organizational unit to which the employee is assigned.

For example: The employee hire date is: 01.01.2020 and the org unit is valid from: 01.03.2020.

Cause 2: The Job ID assigned to the employee in the migration template is set to a limited value instead of an unlimited value.


Solution for cause 1: Ensure that the validity of the organizational unit assigned to the employee covers or includes the employee's hire date.

Solution for cause 2: Ensure that the validity of the Job ID matches the validity of the employee, or vice versa.
