2264884 - SAP Jam: Custom fields don't appear as auto group creation attribute

Symptom

Custom fields don't appear as auto group creation attribute

Environment

SAP Jam

Reproducing the Issue

  1. As a Company Admin in SAP Jam, navigate to Admin->Auto Groups.
  2. Click 'Create a group'.
  3. In the Membership tab, try to select a custom field as the membership criterion.
  4. The custom fields don't appear in dropdown.

 

Cause

You may not be a BizX Admin. As per design only a jam admin who is also an admin in BizX should be able to create autogroups with custom fields as attributes for creation. The design rationale is that a BizX admin might have designated a custom field to store sensitive employee information eg. “salary range”.  A non-BizX admin should not be able to see this metadata in Jam and create an autogroup where “salary grade > 100,000” to determine who makes more than 100k.

Resolution

Logon as a BizX Admin who is also an admin in SAP Jam to be able to create autogroups basing on custom fields.
