Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to integration center open integration center job.
  2. Try to upsert event reason data using EmpJob starting entity.
  3. Upserted successfully
  4. But on when we try to create new record through UI "Insert new Record", Event Reason is not present in the drop down.


That is the expected behavior. Users have permission Employee Central Foundation OData API


Upserting in EmpJob entity will only check the write permission on EmpJob. It will not check related Event Reason permission.

On UI, you will be blocked when choosing an event reason, because the dropdown list is actually querying(reading) event reasons, that read operation will check event reason permission.
