This is related to an issue fix.

From User Interface we cannot make someone manager of himeself/herself.
But for a particular scenario the system allowed the manager cycle creation.


  • One Manager is having 3 direct reports.
  • Now we try to terminate the manager and while termination action we change the manager's supervisor as one of the direct report.
  • The termination action moves all the direct reports to this new manager.
  • Hence, one of the direct report now becomes himself's manager. Which creates manager cycle.

This engineering ticket provided a fix for this issue to prevent manager cycle while termination scenario.
