Permission policy: Make opening ID required for all jobs


Opening IDs allow your organization to track the openings associated with your requisitions, using alphanumeric naming conventions unique to your company's internal processes. To learn more about opening IDs and requisitions, click here

As the name suggests, when your team enables the Make Opening ID required for all jobs permission policy, opening IDs become required for all openings on your jobs. Enabling this permission policy will have two impacts: 

  • When creating a new job, a user will be prompted to either use the Generate Opening IDs button or manually enter opening IDs for each opening on the job. The Generate Opening IDs button will be available only if the user has first provided a requisition ID for the job. This step will be completed during the new job setup flow on the Job Info page. 
  • When editing any details on the Job Info or Approvals page for an existing job, users will be required to provide an opening ID for each active opening prior to saving their changes. 


To enable the Make Opening 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 Opening ID required for all jobs so a check is in the box, and the permission policy will be enabled.
