Symptoms

On : 11.1.4.0.0 version, HCM Common

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------

Future dated hires are not showing up in Person Search when the User logged in has a Data Role attached. 

Data Role preventing future dated new hires from showing up in Person Search.

The test case is that a user with the delivered 'Human Resource Specialist' roles hires a new employee with a hire date in the future. Navigation is Navigator -> New Person. Then they search for this newly hired person with a future hire date through Navigator -> Person Management. They are able to retrieve this person without any problem.

However, when a data role is added to the delivered 'Human Resource Specialist' job role, it's creating a problem. The data role has a person security profile that allows access only to employees belonging to a specific legal entity. With this data role added, when the user now hires a new person with a future hire date, they are still able to go through the entire workflow successfully. But when they go to Navigator -> Person Management to search for this newly hired person, they can't find him or her. The data role is somehow preventing this person from showing up.
 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect the users to be able to see future dated hires appropriate to their data role.
