Reproducing the Issue

  1. Initiate Onboarding for an Internal Hire from Recruiting.
  2. Go to the Onboarding Dashboard.
  3. See that the candidate is missing.
  4. Go to the BPE Monitor Processes
  5. Filter out by 'Variable'
  6. Enter the affected candidate's user name as 'userName=[email id]'
  7. See that there is an error found under Job ID section.


When checking the backend logs, issue is caused by: No permission found for the given permission spec: PermissionSpec{permType='DATA_MODEL', permStringValue='$_payComponentRecurring_read'}

Currently, this is a known issue and is happening while trying to set mandatory fields of 'pay-component recurring' entity for internal hire when the data is not received from RCM using recruit-to-hire mapping.



  • Provide permission for payComponentRecurring entity if not granted. OR
  • Make mandatory fields for payComponentRecurring entity as non-mandatory.


  • The Engineering Team has already introduced a code-fix and is scheduled to be deployed on 2H 2021 (b2111.2) release.
