  • While trying to upsert the Cost Center data using above iFlow, getting below error message-




  • Successfactors
  • DELL Boomi

Reproducing the Issue

1. Define 'cust_toCompany' under SFSF Instance -> Admin Center -> Configure Object Definitions as follows-


2. In Boomi -> Atom Management  -> Environment Extensions, define the value for the Process property 'COMPANY_ID_TARGET_FIELD' as follows-


3. The above field will be passed in the request xml as follows-

"cust_toCompany": "1001"


The property 'COMPANY_ID_TARGET_FIELD' present under the 'Process Property' in Environment Exntensions for the Cost Center iFlow only supports fields(custom fields) and does not support associations.

And since 'cust_toCompany' is defined as an association, you get the 'unknown property' error message.


You can create a custom field(not an association) and specify that field name in Boomi for this property and the error will be resolved.
