While trying to Instance Sync from SuccessFactors Cloud instance A to SuccessFactors Cloud instance B you get the following warning

This is working as designed for RBP part, the issue is due to fieldIds for the same permission are not the same between source and target instances.

The permission is generated based on the section Id, so the permission spec is not the same between source and target.


How to proceed? 

Please note that this warning message does not interrupt the instance sync process, the only issue is that the permission is not synced to roles in target instance →  for now you need to add such permissions manually.
