Root Cause Analysis:

  • A patch was deployed on 23 June 2018 to address an Adhoc Report permission issue (KBA 2661652) which unexpectedly impacted customers using Employee Central Advanced (EC) Reporting. The issue was evident for any Employee Central report where Role Based Permissions (RBP) was enabled (Adhoc reports were not impacted).
  • The original changes were rolled back as an emergency patch (applied 26th - 27th June across all data centres).  Comprehensive testing confirmed that the emergency patch was successful with all EC reports working as expected.
  • The following preventative measures have been identified:

    • Identify and better document Adhoc and EC Advanced Reporting dependencies specifically for Rule Based permissions.
    • Improve the review and analysis process to better determine the impact of any updates within the common code base prior to any patch or release.
