2453986 - Error saying status is not valid in Application Status set when importing job requisition XML


Error message "*status name* is not a valid status in Application Status Set "*application status set name*". Please note that the status name has to match exactly the name of the status in the Application Status Set

shows up when user imports job requisition XML template in provisioning


SuccessFactors BizX - Recruiting Management (RCM)


The validation check has been introduced: If the customer uploads a Job Requisition template via Provisioning, the system will check the names of the statuses that are linked with the field permission under <application-status-config> section. A wrongly typed status name will result to this error message.


1. Status name is case sensitive and should match how it is configured in the application status set as well as on the job requisition XML template

2. Make sure that:

  • There are no spaces from Provisioning > Applicant status configuration > Status set > Status name > check Name of Status
  • There are no spaces from Provisioning > Applicant status configuration > Edit Base (can be found on the upper left corner) > Select status name and verify


  • Application status set
  • Job requisition XML template
