2631744 - Non-permissioned application fields appearing in candidate's view from Job Applied section when requisition is closed


  • Customer defined several company-sensitive custom fields in their job application template and configured read/write permissions for operators (recruiters, hiring managers, etc.) only. Candidates do not have permission to read/write on the configured custom fields. However, when the job requisition is closed, candidates are able to read the data for these company-sensitive fields.

  • Configuration issue.
  • Field overrides were configured in the job application template to allow the fields to viewed publicly by candidates.
  • The field override bypasses the field permissions for candidates. Hence, it allowed candidates to view the fields when the requisition was closed, although read/write permissions were not defined.


  • Inform the customer to remove the field overrides configured in their job application template.
