Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Talent Acquisition Manager - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to change the position number for an existing job opening, the system displays the message shown below. If you click on 'OK' and try to save again, the same message appears.

Job Posting Title has changed. Suggested Job Posting Title is [position description] (18176,17)

System should provide option to save the record with the new job posting title.

When the position number is changed and the new position description is the same as the posting title on the job opening, the change is saved without any messages.


1. Select a job opening.
2. Change the position on the job opening to a position that has a description that is different from the posting title on the job opening.
3. Save the job opening (or Save as Draft).
4. Message (18176,17) appears.
5. Click OK and try to save again. Same message appears.

Due to this issue, the job opening cannot be saved with the new position number.
