While using HCM Adapter (or ERP Adapter) you may encounter error related to the Service Catalog url similar to screen shot below or with Messages like
Adapter can not access business object [Locations]. There was an error while loading resources from interface catalog. This error could be possibly due to the lack of ATOM Feeds related metadata in OIC cache. Please try refreshing the metadata by clicking on Refresh Metadata for the connection XXXX. This might be because REST APIs are not enabled on the HCM Application. Please contact your HCM Administrator. Cause:Error accessing the URL:https://**********:443/hcmRestApi/resources/latest/describe – received HTTP Response Code:500;Reason:Internal Server Error
HCM Adapter can not access business object error
The solution is to basically ignore the error as there is some metadata mismatch in the deployed rest apis.
