2421457 - Event reason is visible in Job History even though no permission


  1. There is no view permission for event reasons in RBP (Employee Data>Event Reasons)
  2. But when I open the historical data of an employee in Job information, I see the event reason.
  3. I shouldn't see the event reason for this role.


Employee Central - Job History

Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to My Employee File>Employment Info>Job Information's History.
  • Event Reason is displayed.


  • For Event Reasons only the "Edit" flag is considered in RBP.
  • The permission has no influence on viewing existing records.
  • The permission only filters the content of the event reason drop down when creating / changing data via MSS (Take Action - Change Job and Compensation Information).
  • It should control that only users with the permission for event reasons can execute these actions (i.e. stop selecting the restricted value in the dropdown for event reason).


  • It is the expected behaviour.
