Cause

There is a field named subVertical that is set as a text string, but the value contains a number which causing this error. The subVertical field defined in Provisioning as a custom picklist for the job requisition templates which causing a conflict with the OData GET call.

Resolution

Check if there is a subVertical field from any of the job requisition template. If none, delete the subVertical field from Provisioning since it is not found to job requisition templates, see below steps:

Provisioning > Configure Reportable Custom Fields > Job Req > Configure Custom to Extended Field Mapping > Picklist: subVertical

Once you removed the subVertical field, please run the same query and check if the error will still occur.
