When trying to invite an agency candidate to apply, a message is appearing saying 'This invitation could not be sent because this job is not posted'. The requisition is posted to the agency.
Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue
1) Try to invite a candidate to apply when they are in the 'Forwarded' status. Get the error stating 'This invitation could not be sent because this job is not yet posted'.
2) Check that the requisition is posted to the agency.
This is considered an expected behaviour when 'Allow forwarding of candidates to unposted jobs' is disabled in Manage Recruiting Settings. Since the job is not posted on the external career site, the candidate will not be able to receieve a link to apply to it from the Invite to Apply email trigger. The candidate is forwarded from the agency but will not apply for the job there. This has to be done through the external career site and therefore, the job will have to be posted there.
