Reproducing the Issue

Sample Scenario :

An Employee having same paycomponent and date updated in Successfactors will return




Business Key for EmpPayNonRecurring Odata API will fetch one value as per business key

HRIS Element ID: payComponentNonRecurring

Business Keys:userId+ payComponentCode + payDate


Option 1. Customer should review the requirement as they can consolidate the values / amount of the pay given that these are issued under one paycomponent type and date.


Option 2. Recommend to update the Business Key and Update the query likewise

2.1 Update the data model to implement new business key (This can be requested with the Implementation Partner) with below script.

Under the element <hris-element id="payComponentNonRecurring"> in the pay component non recurring in the succession data model


<hris-field id="sequence-number" visibility="view" allow-import="true">


2.2 Update the query

/odata/v2/EmpPayCompNonRecurring?$select=sequenceNumber,userId,createdBy,createdOn,lastModifiedBy,payComponentCode,payDate,value&$filter=userId eq 'ssingh'

Updated Query is referenced with "userId+sequenceNumber" Business key, updated on above data model.

2.3 Refresh the Metadata Cache

Reference KBA 2171588 - SuccessFactors: OData API Metadata Refresh and Export

NOTE: If you change the datamodel to include sequenceNumber as abusiness key then it gets changed from payComponentCode+payDate+userId to sequenceNumber+userId for entity EmpPayCompNonRecurring.

Additional Info :

Business Key Behavior

sequenceNumber can be defined as an additional business key via data model configuration. It enables you to have more than one pay component on the same pay date. Once sequenceNumber is introduced as a business key, it must be maintained. If sequenceNumber is not maintained in integrations that rely on the uniqueness of the pay component, these integrations could break.
