3050805 - Job Application - Job-Specific Information Section - Recruiting Management


When no application fields are permissioned to candidates (candidates do not have read nor write permissions to application specific fields), the Job Specific Information banner appears in the External Career Site when applying to a job even if it is empty.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.
