2801341 - Notes Field is exempted from RBP - RBP permission does not restrict access to Foundation Objects in Advanced Reporting

Symptom

User is able to see Notes field in Advanced report despite not having permission.

Environment

SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics (ANA) - All versions.

Reproducing the Issue

  • In an advanced report despite not giving role based permission for the user to access leave reason (event reason)
  • User is able to see Notes field in the report along with leaver notes section

Resolution

  • Advanced Reporting RBP permission does not cover Foundation Objects. This is an expected behavior for "Notes" Field as it is exempted from RBP as can be seen in the Realms Metadata Viewer.
  • In fact all Foundation Objects ( which are not migrated to MDF) and its fields are exempted from RBP.
