Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a specific Job Requisition, open the candidate tab.
  2. Open a candidate application
  3. Check that for this particular status, this operator role can see/edit a specific field which it's not configured in the fields-permissions within the Job Requisition for this role.


The field-permissions for multi-stage is configured also in the Application template and this is given permissions for some operators which is not what was configured in the Job Requisition.


When the multi-stage application settings is enabled in Provisioning, you need to remove all fields from the fields-permissions from the Application template and should be configured in the Job Requisition template. You can check this information in our Implementation Guide.

NOTE: The statusId, resume, coverletter, and application permission fields must remain defined in the Application XML field-permission elements when multi-stage application functionality is enabled.
