2592151 - Manage Global Assignment Details is not Appearing in the 'Take Action' Button of an Employee's Profile


I have enabled all of the global assignment related permissions in a permission role but members of the permission role are unable to to manage the global assignment via the 'Take Action' button on an employee's profile.


Employee Central Global Assignments.

Employee Central Role Based Permissions.

Reproducing the Issue

1. Assign the permission settings needed for global assignments to a Permission Role (Global Assignment View Portlet, Global Assignment Edit Link, Global Assignment Add, Global Assignment Edit/MSS, Global Assignment End, Global Assignment Delete).

2. Login or proxy as a user who is a member of the permission role and navigate to an employee's profile who is currently on global assignment.

3. Hit the 'Take Action' button on the employee's profile and note that the 'Manage Global Assignment Details' button is missing.


The permission role does not have the neccassary permission to update employment records via the 'Take Action' button.


Assign the permission 'Update Employment Records (displayed as 'Take Action' button)' to the permission role.
