Symptom

Environment

Resolution

HR users often need to maintain "key position" attributes, but are not allowed or don't need to edit any other attributes of the position. So far the "key position" attribute is just one field in the overall "edit position" dialog. It should now be added as separate edit feature within the Header section of Position Card, which is visible in SOCv12 and Position tile view.

Permission handling:

Legacy position:
If users have “edit” permission for editing Position, they can change the “key position” attribute.
If users do not have "edit" permission for editing Position, only "view" permission for position, they should not be able to edit the dropdown box. The dropdown box must appear visually in a "non-editable" mode.

MDF Position:
Position: depends on “edit” permission for object, and on the field permission for “positionCriticality” (field level overrides: no access -> info not visible at all; read only -> The dropdown box must appear visually in a "non-editable" mode.

1: Go the required role via Manage Permission Roles

2: Click on Permission and go to Miscellaneous Permission and look for Position Object

3: Give Read Access (for view only access of Key Position on Talent Card) or No Access (for no access of Key Position on Talent Card), as below:
