2714610 - Deconversion of employee to external candidate


 Customer wants to Deconvert internal employee to external candidate . But Internal profile is still accessible  or searchable by user .

Reproducing the Issue

1. Deconversion  job completed successfully  as per the KBA 2081617 . 
 2. Go to Recruiting--> Candidate --> Search for the internal candidate profile .
 3. Users are able to search internal candidate profile .


When a BizX user is inactivated, their internal candidate profile is usually inactivated as well.

However, if you wish to preserve the internal candidate profile data for use in future recruiting activity, Employee to Candidate Conversion must be configured. This causes the internal candidate profile to be switched to an external candidate profile and be disassociated from the inactivated Employee Profile.
In this process internal profile will be preserved in the instance but none of the candidate field is editable by any user.

This is expected behaviour by design.
