The process execution shows as successful, but when opening its logs you can see the error, which is occurring in every execution.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Integration with Third Party Time Vendor-WorkForce Software(WFS)

Cause

In a recent Java update, a new XML Processing Limit parameter has been introduced. The parameter details are:

Name: jdk.xml.xpathExprOpLimit
Description: Limits the number of operators an XPath expression can contain.
Type: integer
Value: Default 100.


Resolution

Our Development team are working on a permanent fix for this (since this limit is introduced by Java in a recent update, the integration would need to inherit this change). The tentative ETA is by 19th February 2023.
In the meantime, to unblock the situation we suggest you customize the content and override the property value.
