Remove HR Administrator role from IT System Administrator

After system configuration, ensure that only the HR Administrator [sn_hr_core.admin] role has access to sensitive information. Remove the HR Administrator role from System Administrator [admin] role to prevent the System Administrator from viewing sensitive HR information.

Before you begin

Role required: admin with sn_hr_core.admin

Ensure that you have at least two users with the HR Administrator role. If you assign only one person with the role and that person is deactivated, you no longer have a user that can perform the HR admin duties.

After removing the HR administrator role from System Administrator, log out and log back in to ensure that the changes take effect.
Note: Ensure that you have completed setup before removing HR Administrator role from IT System Administrator.
Note: Scheduled jobs that require the Admin role do not run. But, all HR scheduled jobs should run after the Admin role is removed.
