Oracle HRMS (Self Service) - Version:


If Enable Security Group profile is set as "No" and user has two responsibilities associated with two different business groups at responsibility level, then proper business group information is not being picked after a responsibility switch happens. It always retains the business group information of the responsibility which has been accessed first.


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Userid is attached to employee who belongs to Business Group1.
2. Now this employee has two responsibilities 'HR Professional for Business Group1' and 'HR Professional for Business Group2'
3.(a)Responsibility 'HR Prof for BG1' has PER_BUSINESS_GROUP_ID attached to Business Group1 and default security profile for the same Business Group
   (b)Responsibility 'HR Prof for BG2' has PER_BUSINESS_GROUP_ID attached to Business Group2 and default security profile for the same Business Group.
4.(a)User logs in and accesses 'HR Prof for BG1' and HR Professional View under that. The user is able to query people from BG1 properly.
    (b)Now same user switches to responsibility 'HR Prof for BG2' and accesses HR Professional View hoping to query for people from Business Group2. But it does not
        fetch any results.
