Background: In Suceesfactors Employee Central we have dedicated option under User Permission Section to control the edit of Business Email Address. Using that permission, we can restrict employee not to edit their business email address. This functionality is used very often for most of the client.

Another very common requirement for most of the client is to control the edit of Business Phone at employee level. But in SuccessFactors we don’t have any shortcut method in RBP to control the edit of Business Phone. In this blog we will discuss how to use SuccessFactors Business Rule functionality to control the edit of Business Phone at employee level.
