Cause

  • Field level permission for Employee Profile adhoc report would be enabled at the backend.

If field level permission is enabled at the backend then we need to give view permission to fields in Role based permission.

 

Resolution

  • In order to resolve this issue, we need to give Employee Data 'view' and 'edit' permissions.
  • Go to Admin Tools
  • Navigate to 'Manage Permission Roles'
