Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Manage Position
  2. Search for the affected position
  3. Make correction>Any data change
  4. Save the record
  5. Application error is received


  •  The user trying to make the data change on the position object does not have permissions to edit the incumbents job information
  •  The position to job info sync is triggered from the 'Manage Positions' UI - Therefore if the logged in user does not have edit permissions to the incumbents job information they will not be able to make the change and the error will generate - See KBA under section UI Changes: 2529515 - Position To Job Information Sync Troubleshooting Guide (PositionToJobInfoSyncRuleCheck) - EC



  • Make the change to the position object via 'Manage Data' instead as this does not trigger the sync - See 

Otherwise you must make sure to grant edit permissions to the job information portlet data so this transaction can process through Manage Positions
