Data Replication Monitor

Reproducing the Issue

  • Login to SuccessFactors as affected user
  • Navigate to Data Replication Monitor
  • Error appears


If we reproduce the issue with F12 developer logs on view, we can see the following error also thrown in those logs:

"en-US", "value" : "User xxxxxxx doesn't have the 'Employee Central Foundation API' access permission for FOLocation"

The new Data Replication monitor is based of OData API permissions  - and all necessary permissions would not be maintained.


Ensure correct permissions are maintained.

Under User Permissions, select the Employee Central Effective Dated Entities category.

Under Job Information, select the View Current option for these fields:

  • Company
  • Country
  • Location
  • Employee Class
  • Pay Group

Review the handbook LINK for complete list of permissions.
