There is a business rule configured as onChange rule in Compensation Information field to set field required. The rule works as expected via UI, however, it does not work via Import Employee Data.

  • Import Employee Data
  • Business Rule


These type of rules to set field "Required" only work in the UI. The required attribute in the rule will not be respected on import. This applies to the whole instance.


As a workaround, use "raise message" in the rule to raise an error instead of setting "required" via import.
