2524810 - Required field validation error message is coming only to particular required fields and not for all the required fields if the operator is trying to move the application from one status to another. the


Certain required fields in the Application form, eventhough marked as required will not be showing any warning against those, if it is left blank.

The Operator would be able to save/move the application to the Next status in the Pipeline without having values in those required fields .

This type of behavior will only happen in Late Stage Applications .

If the fields are defined as required and marked Public=true, which means the candidate will be able to update it .Now the candidate is  an Non applicant, the validation will not be happening, if the Operator is trying to update the Application and move him/her to  the next status in the pipeline

Only the required fields which are marked as Public=False (Where Candiate do not have the access to edit it) will be validated and the error message will come if the Operator is not filling it.

For an Applicant, the required field marked as Public="true" will also be validated and the application will not be saved without filling those fields.

This is by System design.
