Environment

Employee Central - Position Management

Reproducing the Issue

Goto Manage Positions > Create New Position > Save > error pops up

Cause

  1. Assigning Position to Job sync rule under Configure Object Definitions > Position object will not work and can lead to these issues.
  2. Position to Job sync rule is not assigned under Manage Business Conifguration > Job Information > Position field.

Resolution

The Position to Job sync rule's IF condition is: IF Job Information's Position is not equal to null. This logic requires a particular employee's Job Information> Position field access.

This is not possible if you associate this rule under Position Object Definition for the context employee.

Hence, for propagation of values from Position to Job Information, the sync rule should be attached to the jobInfo's Position field.

These information are provided in EC Position Management Implementation guide too.
