3352375 - OData API error when upserting "xx_localized" field


When you use OData API to upsert MDF foundation objects (like FOCostCenter), you wish to update name/description fields such as "name_defaultValue" and "name_localized".

You put these 2 fields in the payload and then upsert failed with below error:

  • Localized value has different source type. Use one of the following: xx_<locale>, xx_localized, xx_translationTextNav. with the index 0

  • OData API


These are mutually exclusive properties: xx_<locale>, xx_localized, xx_translationTextNav

You cannot upsert localized property "name_localized" and country code property "name_<locale>" at the same time.


As the error message mentions, every time please upsert just one of these properties: xx_<locale>, xx_localized, xx_translationTextNav.

Use multiple requests if you need to upsert more than one of them.
