OData Error when trying to connect PO/PI system to SuccessFactors

Hello SAP Experts,

I am using Eclipse in order to integrate my SAP PI/PO system with SuccessFactors via OData API. However, I am unable to connect SF OData system and getting the following exception:

Failed to Connect to OData system, reason [ ParseError at [row,col]:[X,Y]
Message: Invalid byte 3 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence.]

Please follow the steps below in order to regenerate the error:

  • First, you need to install HCI components in Eclipse;
  • Then create iFlow and configure receiver channel to use OData V2 protocol;
  • At last, configure JobApplication url and connect.

Please help me to resolve this issue.
