SAP SuccessFactors Job Description Manager


Migration from Job Description Manager to Job Profile Builder fails if an invalid or inactive Job Code is found.


Job codes should be corrected depending on if the job code should be active:

  1. If the job code should be active, tie the job code to an active user to reactivate it
  2. If the job code is no longer needed, the job code mappings can be removed from the roles via Provisioning to proceed with the migration. As a customer, you do not have access to Provisioning. Please engage a Certified Partner to assist with this configuration.
    • NOTE for Certified Partners: If there are any issues with removing the job codes from Provisioning, please create a case with Product Support under component LOD-SF-TIH-JDM so engineering can process a script. The following details will be required to process the script:
      • Data Center (URL of your login screen):
      • Company Instance ID (where to apply changes):
      • Approval
