3033865 - Required section in Manage Job Profile Template not validating fields when Creating Requisition from Position Org Chart - Recruiting Management


In Manage Job Profile Template, one of it's section is set as Required but when you leave it blank and create a Requisition from Position Org Chart there is no validation saying that fields are blank, the Requisition gets created and data is being passed (except for the blank data).

Reproducing the Issue

1, In Manage Job Profile template, set a section as Required and leave it blank

2. Create a Requisition from Position Org Chart (Make sure that the Job Code is Associated in a Job Role).

3. You'll notice that the Requisition will be created complete with the data and blank data and no validation will happen on the blank Job Profile section. 


This is currently an expected behavior the Required field option is only applicable in Manage Job Profile Templates. The Job Profile is not routed through workflows so the "required section" check is not being done.
