Job Opening Status Reason is Auto Populated with First Reason Code if the Field was Left Blank (Doc ID 1634422.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2015

Applies to:

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


When no Status Reason code is selected while updating the Job Opening status, the system automatically saves the first reason code available on the Statuses and Reasons for that Status code.

If the status reason code is left blank, then the system should not auto-default the first value for the Statuses and Reasons setup.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set Up HRMS, Product Related, Recruiting, Statuses and Reasons - Status Cd - 120,(or any other code)
2. Enter the reason codes for the this Status Code.
3. Open a job opening and change the Status Code to 120 and leave the Status Reason as blank. Save the changes.
4. Again open the job opening page and the Status Code will have a Status Reason

Due to this issue, users get to see wrong Status Codes.
