3229416 - Delete permission is not respecting RBP on MDF Portlet


Delete option is visible for attachment on MDF Portlet when permissions are restricted to the user for this action


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite 

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Employee Profile

2. Go to the MDF portlet > Edit

3. Delete Option is available on attachment field for users without Delete permission


In the current system design, there is no specific permission on the attachment field which can restrict it from deletion. 


As a workaround, You can make a field readOnly or Not visible to a certain permission group using the field level override but there is no setting to restrict the deletion of an attachment.
