2404224 - Nomination Portlet Permission issue for Non RBP and Non EC system


  • Set target population by "Succession Planning Permission" in Admin Center(non RBP System) But user can edit nomination portlet for out of target population.


  • Succession Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to instance xyz.
  2. Check permission setting for username ”abc" by "Succession Planning Permission" Check different attributes for username "abc" and "123".
  3. Go to admin center->update user information-> "Manage Users" Confirm "123" is out of "abc"'s target population.
  4. Proxy "abc" , go to "123"'s scorecard, and confirm "abc" can edit "123"'s nomination portlet.



  • This is expected behavior. The Nomination Portlet lets the user(like "abc") find a target position or incumbent for the nominee(like "123").
  • Thus no matter the nominee ("123") is one of login user("abc")'s target population or not, as long as login user("abc") has succession planning permission, the button of Add Nomination will show on the Nomination Portlet.


  • This is expected behavior.
