2481855 - Item Connector - Cannot revise this item as the classificataion is External-Course


When trying to update an item that was added as external content an error is received stating Cannot revise this item as the classificataion is External-Course


SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions


The error messaging for OCN items can be confusing and generally the error is caused by an improperly configured input file.


Begin with a very basic connector file using only the following:

  • REV_DTE (Be SURE to include the revision date in the format of MON-DD-YYYY HH24:MI:SS do not forget the seconds and be sure the month is in all capitals.) Please see this SAP Note to learn how to capture the exact revision date.

Once you have a successfull load of the file begin adding the settings you need modified.

NOTE: If you are not seeing seconds in the UI then you should change your preferences to view the seconds in the UI
