Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Position Org Chart > Select a Position
  2. Create a Job Requisition > Select the template
  3. Error will be displayed


This error is due to a new validation as part of the H1 2021 release.

Before, the system was not validating if the User being added to the Operator Field was part of the Recruiting Group attached to the Operator Field, if any.

  • For example: <field-definition id="recruiterName" type="operator" required="true" custom="false" group-name="Recruiters"> Now, while creating the Job Requisition, the system will validate if the User belongs to the Group. If the User is not part of the group OR the group in question does not exist in Manage Recruiting Groups, this validation error will occur. 
  • User is being auto-populated by a Business Rule.


There are two possible solutions:

  1. Remove the group associated to the operator field in the Job Requisition template.

  2. Add the User to the Recruiting Group. If the group does not exist under Manage Recruiting Groups, you can create the group and associate all desired users.

  3. Remove User from Business Rule that is autopopulating the user on the requisition .
