2170948 - Reimbursement Details are Visible When Creating a New Expense Report


You are creating a new expense report for a user other than yourself, however you notice that the payment information for this employee is visible on expense report.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Travel and Expenses work center.
  2. Go to Expense Reports view.
  3. Edit an Expense Report or create a new Expense Report on Behalf.

You notice that the employee's payment information (addresses, bank details) is visible in the document, although you expect this information to be masked.


The bank details in the expense report should be restricted to the employee to whom the reimbursement is made and finance and HR only, who then usually own the access rights to Travel and Expenses work center. For users owning Travel and Expenses work center there is no masking as such a user should be able to see every information relevant for travel and expenses (including the address where i.e. a check should be sent to or the bank details where the reimbursement should be paid).
