PeopleSoft Security Interview Questions and Answers

1
What are the different delivered security sets and how do they function?

The different security sets are: - Department, People with jobs, People without jobs, US federal people with jobs, Recruiting job openings and template based hire.
For each security set, admin can enable or disable the access type. Based on this setup, the system will decide the type of security. For example, department security will be driven based on department tree, which is one access type or it can be driven by department setid which is another access type for the security set department.
For POIs with no job rows, to define security, the security set People without jobs is used. The other options are access types like location, business unit or institution. So, the one which is enabled, will drive the security.

Suppose organization XYZ uses PS department security. There are 4 levels in the department tree 1,2,3 and 4 with 4 being at the top of the tree. If a manager A is in dept 3 and has 2 direct reports in the same department. Can the direct reports view data

If the direct reports are also in department 3 then they can see the data for employees in department 2 and 1 only. They cannot see the data for a population which is above their department tree node. Since 4 is above 3 they cannot see the data.

if I am able to see the Brazil flag in a component by means of Global security, will I be able to see Brazil employees too?
