In RBP, Field level permission is restricted for API user to restrict the access to the field (Eg: Local Salary) on UI. However still the 'api user' is able to fetch the 'Local Salary' (Entity - salaryLocal) information.
Sample API call : OData query :https://apixx.sapsf.com/odata/v2/User('XXXX')/salaryLocal?$format=json
