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

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. The Standard Field (EP) for Nationality is configured as a picklist with ISOCountry but the EC Field under Personal Info is a non-picklist field. Configure the HRIS mapping between these fields.

                   

     2. When there is a HRIS mapping configured, an Error comes up as below :

Cause

  • This is an expected Behavior and a Validation on the code.
  • The Standard Field (EP) is configured as a picklist with ISOCountry but the EC Field is a non-picklist field
  • The HRIS Sync mapping between these two fields throws an error message due to mismatch

Resolution

Either modify both the fields to be non-picklist fields or remove the HRIS sync mapping on the EC Field
