Employee role needed to add degrees in Add Application page. Ideally role should be “Administrator” for Degree content section for PERSON ( profile type) (Doc ID 1623942.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 27, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Talent Acquisition Manager - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If you select role as “Administrator” for  Degree content section for PERSON (profile type) then its not visible in Add Application page in Recruiting in 9.2.

Only after you select role as "Employee" (under Setup  HCM>Product  Related>Profile Management>Profiles>Profile Types> Person> Content>Education> Degrees>Under Role  Security>Check allow update for Employee), the option to add degrees gets enabled in Add Application page in Recruiting in 9.2.

This creates an issue. Once we select the employee role, the user also gets the access to add degrees for him/her (In Self Service,My Current Profile) which should not be the case as the users are not authorised to do so.  Ideally, if we select the administrator role,that should suffice and should allow the admin to add Degrees in Add Application page in Recruiting in 9.2.

Note : References to Profile types like PERSON , Fields like School Education , Degree etc, are from PeopleSoft Demo data.


 In 9.0, when in the Content Section, fields like School Education, Degree, etc, are marked as "Allow update", these fields become Read / view only in "My Profile" and are Editable in Applicant's application in Recruiting. However, with 9.1 and the inclusion of RS - JPM integration, this functionality changed.

Currently in 9.1, if a particular item is marked as "Employee not allowed to update" , that item will not even appear for use in Recruiting.
