Reproducing the Issue

  1. Set properly the override configuration in the Job Application template.
  2. Create and post the Job Requisition internally.
  3. Go to apply internally with an account that have a different country than the override configuration.
  4. You will notice the fields are appearing regardless the country configured in the profile.


The override configuration will not work for Internal Candidates if the override country is the same as the Job Requisition posting country. For instance, in the example above, if the Job Requisition posting country is equal to "AU", "US" or "ES", the override will not work and the field will be available for all Internal Candidates.


You can change the country from the override configuration or change the country from the Job Requisition posting Country, either way should restore the override behavior for the configured fields.
