In E-Recruiting, unable to edit the end date of a publication record under the publications tab


My customer faced an issue when the applicant selected a job posting reference code to apply for a job opening, the portal threw an error "Posting is not released; you cannot submit an application.

The posting is already released and yet we still hit this error. We checked in e-recruitment portal under :

1. Requisition Management ==> Requisitions

2. Selected the Requisition Title and Click Edit

3. Selected the Job Posting and Clicked Edit

4. Under Publication Tab, selected the reference code and clicked edit

5. Noticed that the End Date: 31.12.2015 and it is uneditable. we need to extend the date to allow applicant to apply for the opening.

How do we change the end date? Thanks.

    when SAP introduced the feature to extend the publication period some years ago, it was implemented with the restriction that the end date can only be changed if the publication is not unpublished yet, that means the end date is greater/equal today. The reason for that was in the way the publication process is implemented in the application. Otherwise the whole logic to publish and unpublish would have required full reimplementation which SAP did not want to do as reopening a closed publication was seen as a more rare use case. If your posting has the end date in 2015 there is no way for you to extend it.

    If 2015 is a typo and you meant Dec., 31st 2018 the reason should be found in the publisher class of the posting channel. The feature to extend the posting period has to be activated on the posting channel level. The assigned publisher class implements interface IF_HRRCF_PUBLISHER. This interface contains a method PUBL_PERIOD_CHANGEABLE. Only if this method returns X the end date of publications using this channel can be changed.

    Kind Regards, Roman
