Last updated on MARCH 09, 2021

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

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

Enable manager views by position hierarchy.

The status of a position in the hierarchy is set to a user defined status type whose equivalent system defined status is eliminated.

Now when viewed from the My employee Information, the node still shows value as "Vacant Position".

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------

When viewed from My employee information, the node should show the value that was set against that particular position in the position form.

STEPS
-----------------------

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Created 3 new positions (A, B and C) in "Active" status. Map employee to position C and for position A and B don't have any employees mapped.

2. Now created a position hierarchy (H1) with these two positions (A and B) mapped under the position (C).

3. Now created a new security profile "SP1" with Position Hierarchy as security restriction.

4. Map a login to employee at position C. Say it as "Login 1"

5. Set this security profile at user level to Login 1.

6. Set the profile "HR:Display Position Hierarchy" to "Yes" at login level for login "Login 1".

7. Now Logged into the system with "Login 1".

8. Navigated to Manager Self Service --> My Employee Information.

9. Position A and B were displayed under Position C. Node will show value as "Vacant Position" against the Position A and B as no employees are mapped.

10. Now logged in as HRMS responsibility, and navigate to Other Definitions --> User Types and Statuses.

11. Search by the name "POSITION_AVAILABILITY_STATUS".

12. Now added a new status by name "Replaced" whose corresponding System Type is "Eliminated". Save the details.

13. Navigate to Work Structures --> Position --> Description. Date Tracked to a specific date.

14. For Position "A" mark status as "Replaced" (User defined Status - equivalent system status "Eliminated"). Save the details.

15. For Position "B" mark status as "Eliminated" (System defined Status). Save the details.

16. Now Logged into the system with "Login 1".

17. Navigated to Manager Self Service --> My Employee Information.

18. Position A and B were displayed under Position C.

19. Now in node it is shown as "Vacant Position" against the Position A. Which should be displayed as "Replaced" as it is marked as "Replaced" (User defined status for "Eliminated") at the position description level.

20. For position B at node level it is shown as "Vacant Position (Eliminated)" as it marked as "Eliminated" (System defined status) at the position description level.
