  2. Set the sfuser.connector.updateOnNull=Column value that you want to corresponding mapped supervisor field of nullify.
  3. Update the feed file with blank values for the user and the supervisor turns blank.

  • Nullify the values by using the following property in the legacy user connector (not user-sf connector): user.connector.updateOnNull=SUPER
