2809969 - Is it Possible to Update Candidate Background Information via Legacy Import - Recruiting Management

Symptom

Is it possible to edit/update the candidate background information via legacy data import?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management - All Versions

  • Legacy Import

Resolution

In the current system, the legacy import will only insert the data in the DataBase and the upsert won't be possible. The system doesn't read the information already set and if a unique data is added to be overwritten, it will be considered as a new entry, hence the information will be duplicated. In our Implementation Guide, under the Legacy Data Import section, we have the following statement:

  • Data migration imports only create records. It is not possible to update or delete records using a data migration import.

Then, the information should be handle carefully since the update or removal won't be possible trough legacy import.

NOTE: In case you don't have access to the guide referred in this article, please reach out to an implementation partner team.
