When upserting picklists, depending on it's type, you must either upsert the externalCode or the OptionID. Upserting the incorrect value, e.g. upserting externalCode instead of OptionID will make Integration Center through this error.


If the current value that is being upserted in the picklist is externalCode, change it to OptionID and vice versa. To be able to do so, edit the mapping in Integration Center.
