Root Cause

The Pega Process Extender application for Sales Force by default send the users SFDC user id as the pyUserIdentifier parameter in the initial request to PRPC. The OTB IACAuthentication activity processing will first check to see if an existing Data-Admin-Operator-ID record can be found.

If the record can not be found then the activity processing attempts to build the Data-Admin-Operator-ID record for the user using a model record stored in an organization unit record.

The error occurred because the passed in pyUserIdentifier parameter did not match an existing Data-Admin-Operator-ID record nor was there passed in Organization, Division, Unit parameters.


Define a user record within PRPC by creating a Data-Admin-Operator-ID record with a user Id that matched the user's SFDC user id.
