2412565 - How to disable people search in Employee Profile


How can we disable people search in Employee Profile so that no user can be searched in the search box?


HCM Core Bizx Platform


We need to disable 2 permissions in RBP>>>General User Permission.

1. Organization Chart Navigation Permission

Organization Chart Navigation Permission controls user’s hierarchy. If this permission is disabled, user’s hierarchy (manager/peer/direct report) will not appear in Employee Profile.

2. Company info access >>> User Search

If we disable 'user search' here, then any user outside user’s hierarchy will not be searched out in the search box.

No user can be searched if both 2 permission are disabled at the same time.
