SAP SuccessFactors Learning
Reproducing the Issue
- Run the Provisioning job to export the Competency file
- Run the Competency Connector in LMS
- Error "Length of Column Exceeds the Max specified length" after running the connector
This KBA applies to customers who are using a legacy competency module (JDM) which does not have max length fields defined for competency name, description, teaser name and description.
As a result, the connector is failing with the length of column exceeds max error.
Add the following properties to the connector configuration file (System Administration > Configuration > System Configuration > Connector):
Please note that these do not apply to teaser names. If the you are exporting the competency data and the connector is failing with such errors eventhough the configuration is enabled, you must verify the teaser data to ensure it is not over the limit.
