2259323 - "Manage Employee Import Privilege" is missing in the system


We lost the permission "Manage Employee Import Privilege" in Admin Center prod as you can see in the attached. Pls advise where we can have access to manage the permission Manage Employee Import Privilege?


This is mainly because of the reason that "Employee Import" feature was moved under Role based permissions as part of our B1505 quarterly release as an opt in feature (control employee import permission within role-based permissions). If this feature is enabled in the instance and hence "Manage Employee Import Privilege" is not visible.


More details about this feature:

You can now choose to control employee import permission within role-based permissions, rather than in the legacy "Manage Employee Import" admin tool. If RBP control is enabled in your instance, you can use a new "Employee Import" permission in RBP and the legacy "Manage Employee Import" tool is removed. Please note that the RBP control does not have a target population. Granted users can import data for all employees.


Hence this is as per the system design.
