Details: The mapping field xxxxxx is entered in the rule to refer to a simple data type but the Job Requisition has no field with this name that refers to a simple data type."

Environment

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a requisition from position org chart
  2. Error appears: "Sorry, the requisition cannot be created. Creation of a job requisition for position XXXXX failed. Details: The mapping field xxxxxx is entered in the rule to refer to a simple data type but the Job Requisition has no field with this name that refers to a simple data type."

Cause

This issue occurrs because the field xxxxxx (which is mentioned in the error details) was added to the job requisition template, but OData did not have the field as yet. When a new field is added to the job req template, it can take minutes or hours to appear. So, anytime you add to the job req template, you need to perform an OData Refresh. via Admin Center -> OData API Metadata Refresh and Export.

Resolution

Perform an OData Refresh via Admin Center > OData API Metadata Refresh and Export.
