SAP Knowledge Base Article - Public

2160265 - Compound Employee API’s Query limitation with Where clause.

Symptom

You would see below errors in the SFAPI audit log's SOAP_Response for the "Query" operation with API entity "Compound Employee".

  • <faultstring>SFAPI Domain Error!</faultstring>
  • errorMessage>Query failure! Error: Failed to query</ns2:errorMessage>

 

Environment

SuccessFactors 

Cause

This issue occurs when the Compound Employee API queries a large number (over 999) of person_id_external in where clause.

Sample query:

SELECT accompanying_dependent,address_information,alternative_cost_distribution,compensation_information,deduction_non_recurring,deduction_recurring,

direct_deposit,email_information,employment_information,global_assignment_information,job_information,job_relation,national_id_card,

paycompensation_non_recurring,paycompensation_recurring,payment_information,person,person_relation,personal_information,

phone_information FROM CompoundEmployee WHERE person_id_external IN ('120052','120053','120060','120061','120062','120063','120065',...........

.......

......

......

 

 

 

Resolution

This is an expected behavior of the product.

As of now, Database only supports upto a number of 999 ids passed in a list in the where clause of the query.

For larger requirement, It is advised to split or reduce the number of employees in the list for person ids.
