Candidate has been successfully initiated from Recruiting Management, but has not landed in Onboarding dashboard.

There could be several causes for this. One of the causes that will be covered in this KBA is due to the 'cancelOnboardingReason' field in process object being made a Required field.

@support - please refer internal memo for error logs


  • Navigate to Configure object definitions
  • Object definitions > process > take action - make correction
  • under fields > cancelOnboardingReason > details
  • Made Required ''yes'' to ''no'' > save

Post this, you can either test with a new candidate from RCM or restart the blocked process from BPE. Please refer KBA - for restarting blocked tasks.
