3467336 - User Permissions for Organization Block in Spotlight and EP 1H2024


Discrepancy in the Organization Block permissions between Spotlight and Employee Profile (EP). Despite users having access to the Legal Entity, Division, Business Unit, and Department, they can't view organization information via Spotlight. Even after granting all necessary permissions as per the guide:

       • Entity-level: View Current permission for Job Information Actions
       • Field-level: View Current permission for Company, Business Unit, Division, and Department fields

Additionally, the Employees(all) have a permission role that is set to target all users, yet they can't view each other’s Organization Spotlight.
