2730918 - Cannot find End date field in the response - SFAPI CompoundEmployee

Symptom

You are expecting the "End date" in your SFAPI CompoundEmployee response, but you could not find / it is not being returned as API response.

Environment

SuccessFactors Employee Central - SFAPI CompoundEmployee API in Delta Transmission Mode

Reproducing the Issue

Run your SFAPI CE delta query and observe that the XML tag <end_date> is not found in some nodes.

Cause

Since period-based delta transmission is designed for consumers that are not able to handle effective-dated entities and future changes, it ignores end dates of time slices that are outside of the given period.

Resolution

The description of this behavior can be found on the guide section 4.1.1 End Date Handling

Implementing the Employee Central Compound Employee API in Delta Transmission Mode
