2952757 - Recruiting Email Templates not available in Role Based Permission admin page - Recruiting Management


There are no email templates displayed in Role Based Permission admin page for the Recruiting Email Templates permission


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management (RCM)

Reproducing the Issue


You have at least one Recruiting email template configured in the language you are logged in 

  1. Go to Manage Permission Roles
  2. Select a role
  3. Click on Permissions
  4. Go to Recruiting Email Templates
  5. The email templates are missing, there is no email template displayed


This issue is caused due to the Role Based Permission cache. Cache can store only one locale information and it cannot hold the data for two locales at the same time.


Please try the following steps: 

  1. Go to the Admin Center
  2. Go to Manage Recruiting Settings
  3. Go to Enable Role-based Permissions for Recruiting Email Templates
  4. Untick the box and click on save
  5. Tick the box for Contact Candidate and Offer Letter and click on save
  6. Log out and log in again
  7. Go to Manage Permission Roles 
  8. Select the role you wish to grant permissions
  9. Click on Permissions
  10. Go to Recruiting Email Templates 
  11. You should see the email templates configured for that language 

Please be informed that Engineering Team identified this issue as a defect and it will be fixed as part of b2011 release. 

You can use this workaround in the meantime: 

  1. Go to "Manage recruiting settings" in the Admin Center
  2. Search for "Enable Role-based Permissions for Recruiting Email Templates"
  3. Disable the below email template permissions by unticking the boxes and clicking on save:
        - Contact Candidate email templates
        - Offer Letter email templates
