  • This issue comes up due to the presence of an OnSave rule on the customer's Instance. 
  • The Rule creates a custom Generic Object for the Employee, it populates the external Code = Job Information.User ID.
  • For the given user, this object would already exist, and the rule tries to create another object with the same external code, which is not supported.


  • Run a Rule trace to identify which Rule is causing this
  • Re-configure the trigger logic of the Business Rule by modifying the If condition etc
