Reproducing the Issue

Prerequisite: A Business rule for Job Application has been created in your instance, that disqualifies Candidates based on their response to a pre-screening question. (For example - Do you have 3 or more years experience in a similar position? - Yes/No) 

  1. Apply to a Job Requisition
  2. Answer the pre-screening question with the response that moves your candidate to the Disqualified status
  3. Select ‘Apply’
  4. On the Job Requisition, click on Candidates
  5. Select the Candidate > move candidate to another status.
  6. See that the candidate is in a disqualified status, due to the Business rule
  7. Notice that the candidate still shows up in the "active candidate" list.


The Engineering Team have identified the cause of the issue and the correcyion is targeted for the upcoming H1 2022 Release (Preview: April 15, 2022 - Production: May 20, 2022)
