Known Candidates Can Be Referred to Job Submission (Doc ID 2800894.1)

Last updated on JUNE 13, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Taleo Recruiting Cloud Service - Version 21B and later
Oracle Taleo Recruiting Cloud Service - Career Section - Version 21B and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Setting: Configuration > Recruiting Settings > Accept Referrals from Employees for Known Candidates or Submissions is set to No

Expectation: The system should validate if the referred candidate already exists in the system by using the Email address for duplicate validation and prevent the referral of an existing candidate.

Actual behavior:  The refer a friend process can be completed on a known candidate.

Steps in the Career Section 

Refer a Friend > Accept > Save and Continue
Enter an existing external candidate's email address
Save and Continue > Enter some text
Save and Continue  - the referral is created 

This seems to only happen on a job specific flow.
