2543421 - How to update more than 3 subject areas for an item using the Item Connector

Symptom

  • The Item Connector feed file supports only 3 subject areas at a time
  • This KBA covers how to update more than 3 at a time

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Resolution

In order to update more than 3 subject areas for a list of items, the item connector needs to be run multiple times.

Example:

Say you have Item ABC and you wish to assign subject areas A,B,C,D,E,F to the item

To achieve this, we need to run the item connector twice:

  1. For the first run, the feed file would look like:

    CPNT_ID|CPNT_TYP_ID|REV_DTE|NOTACTIVE|CPNT_TITLE|SUBJ_AREA_1|SUBJ_AREA_2|SUBJ_AREA_3!##!
    ABC|ILT|AUG-17-2017 12:05:30|N|ABC|A|B|C!##!

    The above feed file would attach subject areas A,B,C to Item ABC


  2. For the second run, the feed file would look like:

    CPNT_ID|CPNT_TYP_ID|REV_DTE|NOTACTIVE|CPNT_TITLE|SUBJ_AREA_1|SUBJ_AREA_2|SUBJ_AREA_3!##!
    ABC|ILT|AUG-17-2017 12:05:30|N|ABC|D|E|F!##!

    The above feed file would attach subject areas D,E,F to Item ABC without overwriting the existing subject areas in the item.

The same process can be followed in case there are more subject areas.
