SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management (RCM)

Reproducing the Issue

1. Add field "postConvExtContactEmail" to Candidate Profile Template

2. Error "Errors Validating Recruiting Template: Error: Field "postConvExtContactEmail" cannot have "write" permission" encountered while importing template


In Candidate Profile Template, the write permission is given for all the fields (i.e. <field refid="*"/> ). Hence the error is occurring due to as designed "postConvExtContactEmail" field should not have the write permission.


When addidng "postConvExtContactEmail" field, it is recommended to individually define each and every field id explicitly instead of using <field refid="*"/> for write permission.
