2795989 - b1905 - Errors when importing job information - "You cannot import job information records with leave of absence..."

Symptom

As of 1905 it is possible to update LOA records as long as you are not changing the fields: Effective start date, event, event reason, expected return date

This behavior is documented in the below KBA:

2675637 - b1905 - Enable Leave of Absence Editing Switch behaviour

If you are going to the Job History UI and making a change to a job info record it works as expected, however, if you try to perform the same change via job history import than you receive the following error message:

"You cannot import job information records with leave of absence or return to work event reasons using the Job History import in case Time Off with LOA is active. Please use the Time Off import from Import Export data in admin Center for importing data related to leave of absence."

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) - 1905 Release;

Employee Data Imports

Leave of Absence (LOA)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Import Employee Data; 
  2. Select Import; 
  3. Select Job History; 
  4. Select the file you want to import; 
  5. Select Incremental Load; 
  6. Click in Validate or Import (both gives the error); 
  7. Get the error message;

Cause

Expected behavior

Resolution

After our engineering review it was found that although in 1905 we have the enhancement documented on 2675637, for imports the validations remains the same, which means that you wont be able to perform job history imports for LOA records.

For updated information about the enhancement, please refer to the updated version of the KBA 2675637.
