2517392 - No termination button for self


An admin having access to terminate action is unable to see Terminate button under his/her profile's take action dropdown.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


Employee Central - Employee Self Service

Reproducing the Issue

  • Login as a super admin who has access to Terminate action permission on everyone (including self).
  • Here we can see that sfadmin has Terminate access on self (sfadmin):

  • Go to my Employee File > Take Action > Terminate action is not present:

  • It is expected behavior that an admin cannot terminate self (even though he/she has not checked exclude self option in permission role).
  • This is because as soon as the admin terminates themselves (if he/she were to), the admin is no more active and the post action page cannot redirect anywhere with logged in details.
  • To avoid this scenario, this functionality is not delivered and logically the scenario does not justify itself as well.
