  • The movement of COHrisEntityName as part of EC modularization causes an exception in RCM ODATA API:
  • com.successfactors.coengine.error.detail.CONoEntityPermissionException: The entityName isn't an instance of COHrisEntityName! (entityName=FOLocation)
  • Currently COHrisEntityName has moved to different package and EC still has COHrisEntityName in both packages and not deprecated yet.


  • Engineering is working on a prevention fix for this and to depracate the old class which is referenced by RCM which is scheduled for B2011.
  • However, we have a workaround for this which is to perform an OData Metadata Refresh which will resolve this issue.
