A user who has read permission to a Parent field, and write permissions to the Child field cannot update a field


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. A user is permissioned with read access to a Parent field, and write access to the associated Child field
  2. The user cannot edit the Child field


The system is designed that users must be granted write permission to both Parent and Child fields.
