EBS Integration with OIM : Employee Reconciliation : NumberFormatException: “BUSINESS_GROUP_ID”

This post is from our demo environment to configure Segregation of Duties (SoD) in EBS using GRC/OAACG/OIMContact Us if you are interested in demo of GRC/OAACG/OIM/EBS integration for SoD.

I discussed about Oracle EBS (R12/11i) integration with Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) here, and two type of connectors available for EBS integration are

a) EBS UM Connector : User Management to provisioning Accounts in EBS (FND_USER)

b) EBS ER Connector : Employee Reconciliation to create users in OIM from EBS EMployee record (PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F).

In this post I am going to share an issue I encountered in EBS-ER connector during reconciliation of Employee record from EBS to OIM.

For reconciliation of Employee Record from EBS to OIM, you run schedule job eBusiness Suite HRMS Trusted Reconciliation in OIM.


When I run this scheduled job I encountered error like

Import message in the whole error stack was Caused by: java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: “BUSINESS_GROUP_ID”

When reconciliation Job eBusiness Suite HRMS Trusted Reconciliation is run, it runs SQL query that fetches data from table PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F table of EBS and look for column BUSINESS_GROUP_ID 



Fix : Set lookup Lookup.EBS.HRMS.QueryFilters in OIM Design Console

Log into OIM Design Console -> Administration=>Lookup Definition and search for Lookup.EBS.HRMS.QueryFilters

Enter the following Values…

fromDate = 01-Jan-2012|Date|DD-Mon-YYYY
businessGroupID = 202|number
toDate = 12-Apr-2014|Date|DD-Mon-YYYY

Save the Changes

(Here 202 is BUSINESS_GROUP_ID from PER_ALL_PEOPLE_F table)


Run the schedule job eBusiness Suite HRMS Trusted Reconciliation this should now create users in OIM (from EBS Employee)
