3017091 - Leading or trailing space in Referenced Custom Columns


Certain entities and functions will give error or unexpected results when using a referenced custom column with trailing or leading space.

e.g. error when loading a curriculum from Learning Administration or saving an Assignment Profile rule


SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Have a referenced custom column with an ID having a trailing or leading space.
  2. Attempt to use said custom column in a function or entity and receive an error.


The referenced custom column ID space causes a vague database return.


Although you can not create these any more in the UI, a connector or past option may exist; Update the custom column ID or records individually or through connectors as needed to remove the leading or trailing space.
