3210965 - Field Permissions' labels are unreadable in Manage Templates - Recruiting Management/HXM Suite


When hovering over an option in the Job Requisition's Field Permissions configuration in Manage Templates for Recruiting, the label of the option is the same color as the background which makes it unreadable.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Admin Center
  2. Go to Manage Templates
  3. Go to Recruiting Management's tab
  4. Select Job Requisition > select any template
  5. Click on "[NUMBER] Field Permissions defined. Click to modify."
  6. In Field Permission Role Name, Field Reference ID and Field Permission Status the labels are unreadable


In the instance's theme, in Fine Tune > Menus, the option "Text color - active" is the one controlling the label, which is the same color as "Menu item background color - active", which controls the background color.


To make these labels readable, it'd be required to modify the color of the text or the color of the background.

To alter one or both of these colors, you have to follow below steps:

  1. Go to Admin Center
  2. Go to Theme Manager
  3. Select the theme in use
  4. Expand "Fine Tune"
  5. Expand "Menus"
  6. Select a different color for the option "Text color - active" (which is the one controlling the label) and/or the "Menu item background color - active" (which controls the background color).
