How to Write Back OData

When you and your team have completely reviewed and approved your scenario, you can write back the changes in your scenario to your OData ERP system.

Note: Review the best practices before writing data back to your ERP to avoid some common errors and verify that you have synced your scenario data with your source data recently.

Note: The user account performing the writeback must have permission to perform writebacks.

Note: The writeback processing time will vary depending on the security configurations of your ERP back end. The more security checks performed, the longer the writeback process will take.

To write OData changes back to your ERP:

  1. Open the Main Menu and select My Scenarios.
  2. Click the scenario you want to open.
  3. Click Set As Completed on the Scenario landing page, if it has not already been marked as completed during your approval workflow.
  4. Click the Actions menu and select Sync Scenario.
  5. Click Prepare New Report on the Sync Scenario page. This generates a Changes Report of the differences between your scenario in its current state and your source data. Click Confirm to start the report.
  6. Resolve any conflicts that are identified in the report, then click Apply.
  7. Click Sync.
  8. Return to the Scenario page, click the Actions menu, and select Scenario Validation. This will run a check against your scenario to confirm that it does not violate the scenario logic rules that your Nakisa HR Suite administrators want to apply before a scenario can be written back to SuccessFactors.

  9. After you resolve any errors indicated in the scenario validation, return to the Scenario page, click the Actions menu, and select Writeback. This opens a SuccessFactors connection dialog.
  10. Either enter your SuccessFactors credentials or use the credentials passed from the Nakisa AdminConsole and click Writeback.
  11. Note: The user account performing the writeback must have the necessary writeback authorizations.

    Note: The writeback processing time will vary depending on the security configurations of your SuccessFactors back end. The more security checks performed, the longer the writeback process will take.

  12. Return to the Scenario page, click the Actions menu, and select Writeback.
  13. Click Writeback. This starts writing the scenario back in batches.

Note: If errors occur at any point while a batch is writing back, writeback of that batch stops. You will receive an error message letting you know which record has the error. Go back into your scenario to fix the error, then start writeback again.
