       'Sorry, the requisition cannot be created. Creation of a job requisition for position xxxxxxxx failed. Details: jobCode invalid, with the index 0'

  • Position management integration
  • Recruiting
  • Job Profile Builder

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into instance.
  2. Go to company info
  3. Select the Position Org Chart
  4. Select a position that is currently available/open
  5. Choose to create a new job requisition for this position.
  6. During creating the error will appear.


  • The error appears because there is an incorrect mapping within the rule that was setup for mapping fields between position and job requisition


  • Due to the fact that Job Profile builder (JPB) is used in recruiting, the mapping for Jobcode needs to be done in the following way:

  • Notice how the above image only has one argument and not 2. If Job Profile Builder is not installed/used within recruiting, the mapping may be different where 2 arguments are being mapped (Job Code and Job Title Value).
