2828927 - The completion status ID entered is either not valid or does not belong to the given type of item

Symptom

When it is tried to have a course completion imported in Learning through the Import Data > Learning History option, the system fails returning: The completion status ID entered is either not valid or does not belong to the given type of item: "course completion id"

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

In the Learning admin side, click:

  1. System Admin > Tools > Import Data >
  2. Action set to Import Data > Record Type set to Learning History >
  3. Choose File > Submit > Job Status > Failed >
  4. Download the file > Comment column contains "The completion status ID entered is either not valid or does not belong to the given type of item: "course completion id"".

Cause

The fail during the import is taking place and returning this error message because the given completion status does not exist in the Learning environment. While the completion status that is being added in the file does not exist in Learning, the system will return the above message.

Resolution

It would be necessary to have the completion status created in Learning to stop the error from happening at the moment the learning history file is imported.

For additional details on how to have a completion status created in Learning, take a look at the Adding Course Completion Status link.
