2848694 - SF User Connector is not UPDATING user preferences


SF User Connector is not updating user preferences (time, date patterns etcs) as per LMS LOCALE defaults.


SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

Run SF User Connector and update a user's locale. Locale field will be updated but this locale's defaults (date, time pattern etc.) are not applied to users who previously had preferences defined.


Customer was trying to update users with same locale so was being caught by connector delta process and not updating the record (thus not updating date/time pattern preferences).


Manually produce a file and change locale to something different. Then the next time the connector runs with previous locale it will update the user record and apply the default date/time patterns for that locale as currently set in the system.
