Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Development tab and then navigate to Career Worksheet
  2. Check the Make public in Live Profile checkbox.
  3. Unexpected error comes on specifying the role for Employee Profile



Fields other than "title" field inside "preferredNextMove" background portlet would be configured as a mandatory field.


You do not have "view" and "edit" permission for the "preferredNextMove" background portlet.


  • Export the Succession Data Model xml from provisioning
  • Check the background portlet with the id "preferredNextMove"
  • Check if any field, other than title is configured as a mandatory field (required='true').
  • Check the RBP for the "preferredNextMove" portlet

Note: This background portlet should have only one field; title as a mandatory field because Career Worksheet populates data in title field only and if any other field is configured as a mandatory field then the data won't be updated via Career Worksheet.
