  • A user is granted an Role-Based Permission access to the Position Org Chart, but the chart is showing as blank for this user.
  • Are there other permissions that also need to be enabled in order for a user to have the Position Org Chart populate?
  • A screen capture of the error seen in the Position Org Chart for this user, "Sorry, no position found. Please select a position or a person assigned to a position."

  2. After applying this permission users with access to position org chart should be able to see the positions there


  • Position Object Data is maintained by Employee Central
  • If the User does not have a Position Associated to the record, the system will not be able to produce a 'View Current' hierarchy when navigating to the Position Org Chart for the user
  • Make sure that in the Target Population of the granted Permission Role the permission "Exclude access to Granted User's Position" is not marked because if it is marked the users will not be able to see their own positions.
