This happens when change Position in Job Information via Import.The imported file contains four records to change position only.  After implement the import, go to check the Position Entry Date, the 2nd and 4th record's Position Entry Date are set to Hire Date, while 1st and 3rd record's Position Entry Date are set as expected (the same as event date).

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Login instance, go to Import Employee Data
  2.  Import the provided file
  3.  Go to check the imported user's Job History Page, not all Position Entry Date are not set as event date


This needs a code fix.


An internal check is in process, engineering team will provide a code fix later, however there is no confirmed date yet. The KBA will be updated once there is a confirmation.

As a workaround, please add "positionEntryDate" column in the imported file, and leave the field values empty.
