2338276 - Error: [Input ProfileLocation: Payload/data/person/employee_data/hire_date; Invalid Data Element '': MIN_LENGTH_NOT_REACHED

Symptom

Receiving below error message in a custom Boomi process-

Error: [Input ProfileLocation: Payload/data/person/employee_data/hire_date; DocumentLocation: Payload[0]/data[0]/person[0]/employee_data[0]/hire_date[0]]: Invalid Data Element '': MIN_LENGTH_NOT_REACHED Person ID: XXXX User Name: XXXX

Environment

DELL Boomi

Cause

Data Issue

Resolution

As the error message says-  

Invalid Data Element '': MIN_LENGTH_NOT_REACHED

The error is occurring because the minimum length defined for this particular field is >0 but the value in the incoming payload is '' due to which the map step fails with error message 'Invalid Data Element'.

Need to correct the data in the request payload to ensure the data validation checks defined in Boomi for the fields are successfully passed and once done, the issue will therefore be resolved.

NOTE: You can check the field validations in Boomi by navigating to the Map step which is throwing the error and clicking on 'Edit Profile' option where you will see below screen where all the data validation checks are maintained-
