3050980 - Employee Delta Export Error: Invalid SFQL! Error: "deduction_recurring" is not supported in query mode "delta"


When trying to run the Employee Delta Export you receive the following error:

An error occurred during an API call to the backend: Invalid SFQL! Error: "deduction_recurring" is not supported in query mode "delta". For more details see the (hidden) 'Responses' sheet.


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

  • Compound Employee API 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Perform an Employee Delta Export in query mode
  2. Select the segment to be used as "deduction_recurring"
  3. Fails with the error above 


Not all segments are supported by Compound Employee API in Delta transmission mode (queryMode=delta)

There are some segments that do not support Delta transmission and the "deduction_recurring"  is one of them  


Delta Transmission (queryMode=delta) is not support for this segment: "deduction_recurring"
