Reproducing the Issue

  1. Initiate the candidate via Recruiting
  2. In the Recruiting, you can see that the Submission Status is Success
  3. But the candidate didn't appear in the Onboarding Dashboard


  • The issue is caused due to the Manager ID passed from RCM to ONB
  • You may check the Data Inspector and Employee Profile and see that the user is inactive in the system


Maintain an active user as the Recruiting Manager for the requisition and post that you can proceed by restarting the error for the candidate in the Business Process Tile. The candidate should be initiated successfully.
