Has a user ever asked you why data seems to have disappeared
from view? There are many possible causes, of course, but
row-level security is usually a top suspect. In the HRMS/HCM
product, you might have a problem with your department tree,
or maybe the SJT tables are not up to date, or
there is a SETID problem, etc. Then employee data could
drop off of queries or disappear from online pages.
Here is a quick test you can try to see if this
situation is occurring in your system. Log in under an ID
that should have access to all employee data. Go into PeopleSoft
Query and build a query for a list of all employee IDs.
Save the query and copy the SQL.
In your SQL tool (Query Analyzer, Toad or whatever you use),
write a query to select all employee IDs and then exclude
all of the IDs that would be selected by the PS Query version:
AND EMPLID NOT IN (
(your PS query SQL here)
This should give you a list of all employee IDs
that exist in the database but would not be selected by a
query constrained by row-level security. Hopefully you will
not see any IDs like this. If you do, a little research should lead you to
the cause of your row-level security problems.
