2360584 - Variable Pay - Business Goals Import failed with errors "lookupField" must be defined in Data Model


When doing a Business Goals import the email notification shows different failed entries with the message "lookupField" must be defined in Data Model.


Variable Pay


The customer is using Employee Central but the background section in the Data Model hasn't been configured correctly to allow the use of Employee Central.


It is necessary to modify the background section used in the Variable Pay template at Data Model level. When integrating Variable Pay with Employee Central we need to define a new way how the Business Goals File and the Eligibility Rules will be connected. For that it is necessary to define a new field recordType on the background section.
