2613826 - Application status pipeline validation - Recruiting Management

Symptom

Why is moving a candidate through the status pipeline using drag and drop or action menu not validating the required fields and it is validating when changing the status from the candidates application?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.
