2949495 - Direct Report Reassignment: New Manager appearing the same as Internal Hire's name

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Manage Pending Hire
  2. Click on an Internal Hire candidate 
  3. Scroll down to Direct Reports Assignment table. You will see that the New Manager is the same as the Manager leaving the position 
  4. Click "Load More" and you will notice the rest of the direct report is under the correct manager.


This is a known defect. The code of checking if the candidate apply for same position needs to be enhanced and also when clicking "load more".


Permanent fixed will be implemented by b2011 release.


Manually update New Manager to the correct Manager
