This article describes the behavior and recommendation when any recruiting operator is sending an offer letter and encounters an error with any of (but not limited to) the following fingerprints.

  • fingerprint=eb228b7d6464e6f88dbf34048a09803cbdfaf7f4
  • fingerprint=c52f39fd9c7bbc47adf6a032c978da5135bc7cc4
  • fingerprint=f1685466f12f2bae12cc0731c4300fcf6d42e92b
  • fingerprint=03281ad81985b6b1665c8261226a52b0f1e57d8c
  • fingerprint=c098dee16d0f917172e35767e890fe3d5379c816
  • fingerprint=dd4aac2104ab9540f7219b65adeba49797f1f0f9

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting > Job Requisition.
  2. Open Candidate list.
  3. Open the Candidate Application.
  4. Go to Take Action > Offer > Offer Letter.
  5. Create Offer Letter then click Next step and see an error with any of the following fingerprints provided.


Based on our server logs, the error is due to the Document attachment settings / Attachment file size / Failed to store attachment. 

Sample Server Logs:

ServiceApplicationException (errorId=xxx, fingerprint=c098dee16d0f917172e35767e890fe3d5379c816, timestamp=date/time): Failed to store attachment

ServiceApplicationException: Failed to store attachment


When sending an offer letter with or without an attachment, the system checks the configuration of the Attachment user limit and the Attachment max file size. The error prompts when any of the limits were hit. Note: Even if the offer does not have an attachment this limit can be encountered since the whole offer itself is being treated as an attachment. 

Recommendation: Update the Attachment limits. Go Admin Center > Company System and Logo Settings > Document Attachment section. 

  • Set Attachment user limit to 'No limit'.
  • Set Attachment max file size to '10M'.

If you still have errors with the same fingerprint after setting these 2 values, please create a support ticket so that Support can increase your Attachment Storage Allocation to 1000G.
