Hello Everybody,

I cannot write/update the data into the SF(Success Factor) table using ODATA, via BODS.

I need write the data in the tables like Empcompensation, Perperonal, PerAddressDEFLT...

Please find the configuration of Datastore with ODATA adapter.

With this configuration,I can only read or extract the data from SF.

On the other hand, I can read/write the data using SF APIs. But some tables are only available in OData API. see picture

Are there someone knew the problem ?

Thanks for your help

Can you check if the tables which you want to use as a Target in Data services the option to upsert(Insert/update) in SuccessFactors

E.g the Table EmpCompensation in SuccessFactors application might not have the Upsert Option set.

Kindly check the settings in SuccessFactors

Please note that BODS does not perform an upsert operation for ODATA V2. Instead it performs an INSERT and a MERGE, per this documentation. A lot of the Successfactors ODATA objects only support UPSERT operations.
