3199970 - Cannot read properties of undefined reading bindingType - Document Generation Template mapping


Error - Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'bindingType') on opening a template in document generation mapping tool


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: Document Generation

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Admin Tools > Manage Document Generation Template Mapping
  2. Search for affected template > select template > Error: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'bindingType')


One possibility for this error is placeholder having space at beginning or at end, or having a comma in between in the placeholder label.


Remove the space at start/end and any commas in placeholder label from Manage Document Generation Template > affected template > save. The error will not happen on opening template mapping now.
