2548296 - How To: Configure Job Requisition Hold Status/ Closed Status


A recruiting user can close a requisition regardless of the status field value. This could result in a closed requisition containing a status value of “Open” or other similar incorrect value. To guard against this, it is possible to configure the requisition status field to be validated against the requisition Approved/Closed state. This optional configuration helps ensure the requisition state and status match.

A status with a value of “99999” indicates a status of closed, while a status with a value of “88888” indicates a requisition on hold.
