SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access Recruiting tab;
  2. Find a requisition and access a candidate summary;
  3. Open a job application;
  4. The operator with "Read" permission can see the Candidate Status field, but the value of the field is not visible;


The operator role doesn't have the "Selectable By" permission in the related application status.


Please grant the "Selectable By" permission to the necessary operator role. 

  1. Go to Admin Center > Edit Applicant Status Configuration
  2. Click on the status set and open the related status
  3. Find the "Selectable By" option, select the operator role to grant the permission

Note: having the "Selectable By" permission doesn't mean that the operator can change the candidate status. The permission to change the candidate status is still controlled by the read/write permission in the Job Application XML template. The read/write permission in the Job Application XML template affects the ability to view/edit the Candidate Status field. The ability to see the status labels are controlled by the "Selectable By" permission in the Edit Applicant Status Configuration.
