Field Security

You can secure a field on a form so that specific HR users cannot view it.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_hr_core.admin, security_admin

About this task

Use Access Control (ACL) on a field to secure it.
Note: This example shows how to secure the Social Security field on an HR Profile form so users with the HR Manager [hr_manager] role or below cannot view it.


  1. Navigate to HR Profile.
  2. Select an HR profile record to edit.
  3. Right-click the Social Security number field and select Configure Security.
  4. The Security Mechanic menu displays. Change the Operation to secure field to read.
  5. Move the role that you do not want to view the field to the Selected column. For example, move hr_manager.
  6. Click OK.
    Because HRSM is a scoped application, you have to:
    • Elevate your role to add security_admin. Click your login name and select Elevate Roles.
      • Check security_admin.
      • Click OK.
    • Change to the scoped version within the form.
      • Click the Settings gear icon icon.
      • Select Developer under System Settings.
      • Change Application to Human Resources: Core.
      • Close the window.
