Reproducing the Issue

  1. The following publish code is present in the template xml:

          <comp-ect-output-component componentType="payComponentNonRecurring" componentCode="1234" effectiveDate="2022-08-01">
  2. The worksheets are launched and completed. There are values present in the fields customvalue and customcostcenter on the worksheet. 
  3. When the values are published, the job completes successfully but cost center information isn't published or partially/incorrectly published.


internalId value on the cost center should be published back into the payComponentNonRecurring cost-center field on EC. If the internalId field is not visible , please go to Configure object definitions > Cost Center and set internalId visibility to "Read Only".

Now, you should be able to see the internalId. Please use/store the value (11799721 in this example) in the customcostcenter (custom field on worksheet) to publish into EC.
