3072688 - SAP Successfactors Job Profile Builder API JobProfile > JobProfileLocalizedData SectionID Value not available for Upsert


When trying to create sections to add to a JobProfile created via API, Sections shortDescriptions, longDescriptions (under JobProfileLocalizedData) requires sectionId and sectionType to be created.

But this value is unknown and is autoassigned/generated by system

  • Question is how to create JobProfile and Update its sections e.g. shortDescription, longDescriptions if you dont know the sectionId ?
  • Where do you get the sectionId, sectiontype data for a newly created Jobprofile, so you can use these field values to upsert to them and data?

 "Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."
