Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Admin Center > Reassign Job Requisitions
  2. Select the requisition template and requisition id which you want to reassign
  3. Click on Continue. The list of operators will appear for you to select and reassign the requisition.


The reason is that the Originator (O) role is not configured in the job requisition template; it is assigned to any user who creates the requisition -- this is defined on the background. The Originator's manager (OM) is the upline manager of the originator, and is defined in the Employee Profile of the originator. The OM user changes based on the Originator of a requisition. While reassigning job requisitions, you can only select operator roles which have been defined and configured in the job requisition template. Since the originator is not defined in the requisition template, you cannot directly assign requisition to a different originator.


It is not recommended to change the originator of the a requisition; however, if your business requirement demands this, then the only way you can do it is to define the "originatorName" field in the job requisition template and provide proper permissions to this role. Then you can give write permission for this "originatorName" field in the requisition template to the operator who wants to edit/change the Originator. This requires XML changes inthe Job Requisition template.
