3383349 - MDF Import new record with different effective date behaves differently between UI and API as " Pending data exist! " is thrown


As a SuccessFactors administrator, When I create a new  record with a different start date via API (https://myURL/odata/v2/upsert?$format=json&workflowConfirmed=true), I get an error message stating there's a pending approval for a previous record with another start date: " Pending data exist! "

In simpler terms, we can't make changes if another request is waiting for approval, even if it's for a different start date and although The MDF object  have  Pending Data set to yes.

The only way to create a record in this situation is through the SF UI, not using API or the MDF Import.
