  •  Employee Central - Payment Information
  •  Employee Central - Role Based Permissions

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Go to a permissions role
  2.  Scroll down to edit granting section and click on edit granting
  3.  Go to Specify the target population for the other objects section an find payment information details value and observe radio button not clickable


It is not possible to restrict an object that is the child of another object. Payment Information is the parent of Payment Information Details.

 Payment Information Details object takes the effective dating from the parent here, and the parent effective dating is set to basic.




Due to the fact the payment information effective dating is set to basic, it is not possible to restrict the objects field via the granting section of RBP.

 All you can do is just grant normal permissions on object level.
