c. Allow Granted Users: checked
d. View Employees: Restricted
e. View Contingent Workers: Restricted
f. View Applicants: Restricted
g. View Contacts: Restricted
h. View Candidates: None
i. (T) Supervisor Security
j. Restrict by Supervisor (person-based): checked

2. For seeded responsibility “Manager Self Service V4.0”
a. Set profile “HR: Security Profile” to “XXX_HR_SUPERVISOR” for this responsibility
b. Assign the responsibility to the Oracle userid that will be used for testing, in this case XX_User.

3. Demonstrate the issue
a. Start an Oracle session as XX_User
b. (R) Manager Self Service V4.0
(M) My Employee Information
c. Search for say “XXX%” in the search box at the top of the page, click Go.
d. Note that XXX_ABC appears
e. Click the “My Employee Information” link immediately below the search box to return to the main page. Expand all employees and note that this employee does not appear as one of XX_User’s reports.
f. The issue has been reproduced: XXX_ABC is not visible by drilling down but can be found using the search box.
