On 12.1 HRMS version of Development Instance, In the Personal Information Page.

Some of the notifications that Managers receive in their Worklist result in "Unexpected Error".

The issue seems to be constrained to "For Information Notifications" that result from staff members who make changes to their emergency contacts in Oracle HR Self Service. The users are able to change their data, the issue is with the link that shows on the Managers Worklist. When the manager clicks on the link for the "FYI Notification" an error is returned, "You Have encountered an unexpected error. Please contact the System Administrator for Assistance" and the normal webpage showing details behind the notification is not displayed.


'You have encountered an unexpected error. Please contact the System Administrator for assistance. Click here for exception details.'
