2578847 - Non Permissioned Users Can Select All Job Requisition Templates from Position Org Chart - Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to recruiting tab.
  2. Click "create" to create a new job requisition.
  3. User can select only job requisition templates they are permissioned to.

The above three steps is the expected behaviour

  1. Now go to Company Info drop down menu in the top right corner.
  2. Click the position org chart tab.
  3. Click on a job position.
  4. Click the menu option in the top right of the pop out menu.
  5. Click Create job Requisition
  6. Click the drop down arrow beside the job requisition template and the user will be able to see all existing job requistion templates.


Using Role Base Permission, the 'Permission to Create Forms (selected templates)' will only influence which templates the user can select when the Job Requisition in being created via the Recruiting tab -> Create New. When the user creates the Job Requisition via Position Org Chart, the permissions that will allow the user to select the templates forms is 'Select Job Requisition Template in Position Organization Chart' under 'Manage Position'. However, if the user doesn't have the permissions 'Permission to Create Forms (selected templates)' and 'Select Job Requisition Template in Position Organization Chart' granted, the user will not be able to create Requisitions via Org Chart and the system will throw a permission error. Basically, one permission will allow users to select all the active templates and the other will restrict which template you can use to create the Requisitions.

NOTE: Is currently not possible to select which templates the user can select when the Requisition is being created by Org Chart. If 'Select Job Requisition Template in Position Organization Chart' is enabled, the system will show all the actives Job Requistion templates that are configured in Provisioning.


This is the current expected behaviour.
