This is a permission issue. The user does not have the permissions 'View' and 'Edit' for the Employee Time object, if it is secured.


  • To fix the issue, grant 'View' and 'Edit' permissions for the Employee Time object. You can check in the Object Definitions tool what is the permission category that the object is stored.
  • For related permissions, refer handbook Time Off Employee Self-Service User Interface (UI)
