Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting > Candidate 
  2. Search for candidate
  3. Click pencil icon to upload resume
  4. Upload the resume
  5. Click Overwrite Profile to get the error


User from the dynamic group has limited permission in field or background element.


In uploading a resume when resume parsing is enabled, it is expected that data from the document will be populated in the candidate profile. If the user has no write permission on this field or background element, the system will give the error. To provide permission, update the field permission of the dynamic group in the Candidate Profile template.
