Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Templates
  2. Open the Job Requisition template
  3. Add the Source Object in the Object Field
  4. See that the error will popup


There are two possibles causes for this error and both are misconfigurations:

  • There is no Association for the Parent Object in the Child Object
  • The SourceFieldName format is incorrect


The configuration cannot be set up if the Parent Object isn't defined in the Associations of the Child Object. Please, refer to the following Implementation Guide link on how to set up the configuration:

Job Requisition with HR Master Data - Field Criteria Definition in Job Requisition

The SouceFieldName format needs also be defined correctly in the configuration and for that, you need to follow the table provide inside the link mentioned above. Notice that each Object Type requires a different format. Make sure to double check which are the object types you are using in the relationship.
