2953422 - Unable to Edit the Field Employee Deviating Full Name


Employee Deviating Full Name field is non-editable anymore.


SAP Cloud for Customer core applications: Version 2005 onwards

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to People workcenter
  2. Select Employee view
  3. Select and Open any employee
    In the Overview facet you can see the field: Deviating Full Name is Read Only


The field Deviating Full Name in the Employee TI is editable if the user opens his own Employee instance, and it is readonly if you open another employee.
It behaves in the same way like all the other fields in the Employee TI header. The field was always editable earlier and later this was corrected in 2005 upgrade.


The system behavior is working as per the design.

The field is currently not available in the Employee Admin screen which will be added in one of the future releases.
