Reproducing the Issue

Login as user >> Goto Candidate Search under Recruiting >> Filter by Job req id for which the logged in user has no access >> A message displays as below:

"Invalid or no permission on the Job Req ID entered. Please check the ID and try again." 

If you click on Accept, then the list of candidate under the above job req will be displayed.


This is an expected behaviour. Candidate search cannot be restricted by the filter elements >> Ex: job req id in this case.


The candidate search cannot be restricted based on the Job requisition access. It can only be restricted by the options the candidate choose for his / her profile visibility.
