Reproducing the Issue

  1. Manage Data
  2. OnboardingCandidateInfo
  3. Find affected candidate
  4. failedSEBEventsOccured = Yes




  • This field is by default set to "No" and would be set to "Yes" when ONB is not able to process RCM common update SEB events.
    • Some field value changes in RCM could be candidate details - First Name, Last Name or Job Requisition related such as Hiring Manger etc. 


  • Is it necessary for the value of the "failedSEBEventsOccured" to be "No" in order to proceed with hiring the candidate?
    • It is not necessary for the value of the field to be "No", the hiring process will not be affected.
  • Are there any knock on affects to the Candidates Onboarding Process if "failedSEBEventsOccured" = "Yes"?
    • This will not impact the Onboarding Process but there may be some data inconsistency between RCM and ONB.
