2152747 - SFTP Proxy Import jobs completes but reports error: proxyImportjob just finish execution:PROXY_MODULE_ERR_BAD_COLUMN| 5

Symptom

The Proxy Import file fails with PROXY_MODULE_ERR_BAD_COLUMN| 5  when run through a sceduled job.

Same file works fine when importing through Admin Tools.

Environment

SFTP

Cause

The import template generated from Admin Tools is created in the language of the user generating the template.

When the job is scheduled the Job Owner must have permissions for proxy management and must also have the same Locale as the template generator.

The system does a column by column validation on the data.  Column 5 is the first proxy category, if the language is not the same as the owner the validation will fail.

Resolution

1.  Change the job owner to the proxy template generator

or

2. Generate the template as the job owner.
