3042857 - Integration Center shows correct result in Preview but delivers wrong value in Output file


  • In Integration Center, one or more fields show correct value in preview but delivers wrong value in the output file.


"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."


  • SAP SuccessFactors Integration

Reproducing the Issue

  • Create an Integration in INC.
  • Include Date type fields in the integration or a date field for calculation of any field.
  • Save and Run the integration.
  • You will notice correct value in "Configure Fields" tab or Preview but wrong value in Output File for the fields having Date Comparisons.


  • The issue happens when we are not using datetime field type while doing the calculation. Like instead of 09/01/2020 we have to give 2020-09-01T00:00:00Z and then compare with the Date Field.





  • Make sure the Date fields being compared are in the same format.


Note: The datetime field comparison will work in preview even with value 09/01/2020 but will not work at the run time due to incorrect field type. Hence we need to change the value from 09/01/2020 to 2020-09-28T00:00:00Z .
