  1. Check the affected entities data previously mentioned,for this case, the EMAIL column
  2. Find out that the file has an invalid value for column "EMAIL" (containing a phone number, for example)


In this case, user record on Learning was not created by SF User Connector because the system rejected the value of e-mail column based on e-mail validation rules.


  1. Check the e-mail value filled in on affected user's records
  2. Change the e-mail to a valid value
  3. Wait for the next scheduled date of SF User Connector to run, or run the job manually
  4. Check if the user records were accepted and created on Learning

When implementing the solution the expected behavior is that the user record will be created and the user will have access to LMS, as the connector will run without exceptions.

NOTE: Since connectors can be used to import thousands of records in the system, we highly recommend that you engage with our Professional Services organization or an implementation partner before attempting to utilize a connector to import/update data, especially in a production environment.
