PeopleSoft HCM Fundamentals: Controlling access to country-specific sub pages in HCM

Component with Country Specific sub pages
Through this (quick) post, we want to discuss a fundamental functionality in PeopleSoft HCM. A number of components in HCM, have sub pages that are used to capture country specific information like military data, ethnicity information, religion etc. If you log into a demo database with a super user id like 'PS', you will be able to see sub pages from all relevant countries. In an actual implementation, this is less than ideal. During an implementation, you would want to limit the display of the country specific sub-pages to only those that are supposed to be viewed by a certain user. So, if you have a multi-country implementation across USA, France and Australia - you should be able to configure the display of the sub-pages in such a manner that users from USA can view only USA specific subpages, French users can view only sub pages specific to France and the same rule holiding good for Australia.
This can be controlled at the primary permission list level of a user id. The countries that a certain primary permission list has access to, can be setup in  Setup HRMS > Security > Component and Page Security > Setup Global Security > Setup Global Security.
In the above navigation, you can enter the countries that a primary permission list has access to and once the primary permission list is attached to a userid, that user will only be able to view sub pages from the configured countries.
It is as simple as that!
