Permission policy: Make requisition ID required for all jobs


Requisition IDs (req IDs) allow your organization to identify and track jobs based on alphanumeric naming conventions unique to your company's internal processes. 

When your team enables the Make Requisition ID required for all jobs permission policy, the Requisition ID field becomes required for all new jobs. Users will be prompted to either use the Generate Requisition ID button or manually enter a req ID during the new job setup flow on the Job Info page.  


Note: The Requisition ID field has a limit of 50 characters.

To enable the Make Requisition ID required for all jobs permission policy, a Site Admin with the user-specific permission Can edit another user's advanced permissions should click the Configure icon configure.png in the upper right-hand corner, then navigate to Permission Policies on the left-hand side.


Click the box next to Make Requisition ID required for all jobs so a check is in the box, and the permission policy will be enabled. 


Note: It is not possible to restrict requisition IDs in Greenhouse. If a user clicks the Generate Requisition ID button, the ID generated will be based on the next sequential number that has not been used by your team already in Greenhouse Recruiting. If a user chooses to type a req ID in manually, the user can enter any combination of letters and numbers, including a combination previously used. Greenhouse Recruiting will surface a warning the combination has been used previously, but will not prevent the user from saving the requisition ID. Requisition IDs intentionally are available in a free-text format to allow your company to use this field in a way that best aligns with your internal needs.
