Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Position Org Chart
  2. Select a position
  3. Click on one of the following options: Add Peer Position or Add Lower-Level Position
  4. Check the fields that was copied


Miss configuration on the rule that defines fields being copied, the rule is setting values based on the New Position which is Null.



  1. Go to Position Management Settings
  2. Select UI Customizing tab
  3. Click on the rule defined on Rule for Defining Copy-Relevant Position Fields
  4. Click on Make Correction
  5. Adjust the Set condition which is not working to "to be equal to Source Position." instead of "New Position."
