2677181 - Leave of Absence (LOA) Record in Job History is editable


If a Leave of Absence (LOA) record was created via Time Off, a Job Information record is inserted to the Employee's Job History.

Currently, when the Job History for LOA record was edited, the Effective Start Date is editable. This should not be the case as this will change the LOA date which should be done only via Time Off or Manage LOA.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Request a Leave of Absence (LOA) via Manage Leave of Absence or Administer Time Off.
  2. Observe that Job Information was created on Job History. Click on Edit.
  3. Effective Start Date is shown as editable field and you can modify the value from Job History.

There is a defect logged about this Effective Start Date being editable in People Profile (PP3) for an LOA Record from Job History.

In V12, this is working as expected, Effective Start Date is not editable.


The fix will be available on b1811 Release. Please refer to our Release Notes and communications for the exact date.

Effective Start Date for LOA record (Start and End) should be editable only from Time Off, not in Job History.
