SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Import the file using Proxy Import.
  2. The system states that the file has been accepted and is being processed.
  3. You get a notification email from the system stating that proxy was not created as record was not processed with the error "Error: Invalid Templates: [YES]".


  • Look for a coloum "PM Form Templates" and the value that you are supplying in it.
  • The expected value for this columns is either valid PM Form Template IDs or it should be left blank where as the entered value in the erroneous scenario is 'YES'.


  • Remove YES and either make the column value as blank or provide the Template IDs.
  • If you'd like to enter multiple form ID's in this column please use pipeline line i.e. '|' to separate multiple values ex. - 12|19|44|1.
