Taleo Import process ending in error 'XPath expression failed' for New Hire data

Using Fusion Taleo standard integration and importing hired candidates in Fusion from Taleo by running the scheduled process "Import Oracle Taleo Recruiting Cloud Service Data" for New Hire data. Process id 39543 has gone into error while trying to import a selected candidate.

The process always used to successful before made a change in notifications workflow associated to it. Got a client requirement that for candidates hired in US notifications should go to User A for example and for UK it should it go to User B. So, we are trying this by using country code == "US". All configuration looks to be fine, but not sure why the it is not working or the why it is causing the import process ending in error.


The job has completed in ERROR status
FAULT_NAME=subLanguageExecutionFault::FAULT_TEXT=com.oracle.bpel.client.BPELFault: faultName: {{http://schemas.oracle.com/bpel/extension}subLanguageExecutionFault}
messageType: {{http://schemas.oracle.com/bpel/extension}RuntimeFaultMessage}
parts: {{summary=XPath expression failed to execute.
An error occurs while processing the XPath expression; the expression is concat('FAULT_NAME=', ora:getFaultName(), '::FAULT_TEXT=', ora:getFaultAsString()).
The XPath expression failed to execute; the reason was: Variant not found.
The variable "__fault" is not declared in the current scope. All variables must be declared in the scope before being accessed.
This was an internal error. The flow was not generated correctly by the BPEL compiler.
Contact Oracle Support Services. Provide the error message, the composite source, and the exception stack trace in the log files (with the logging level set to debug mode).
