There is an association between objects which is missing values for association.

For example, association between LegalEntity and Location.


Find out the missing association value by finding out all the associations for the fields shown in the error.

For example, we verified the LegalEntity association in the Corporate data model and found that its associated to Location object.

And the location which we were using during add new hire was missing LegalEntity value under location.

Check association in CDM.png

Maintaining the LegalEntity/company value under location resolves the error.
