2421457 - Event reason is visible in Job History even though no permission


  1. There is no view permission for event reasons in RBP (Employee Data>Event Reasons)
  2. But when I open the historical data of an employee in Job information, I see the event reason.
  3. I shouldn't see the event reason for this role.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Job Information

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to My Employee File>Employment Info>Job Information's History.
  • Event Reason is displayed.


  • For Event Reasons only the "Edit" flag is considered in RBP.
  • The permission has no influence on viewing existing records.
  • The permission only filters the content of the event reason drop down when creating / changing data via MSS (Take Action - Change Job and Compensation Information).
  • It should control that only users with the permission for event reasons can execute these actions (i.e. stop selecting the restricted value in the dropdown for event reason).


It is the expected behaviour.
