How to import Competency mappings to Job Roles when using JDM 1.0?


SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite (Job Description Manager - JDM 1.0)


The import functionality of Families/Job Roles/Competencies does not provide a template directly inside SuccessFactors application to update/create new data. Inside this KBA are examples of how you can build a file to be used for the “Import Job Roles” functionality (also known as “Job Family/Roles/Competency Mapping Import”), for mapping Competencies.

Though the header is not visible for this sort of import, this is what it would look like:

Job FamilyRolesCompetency Mapping Import - Mapping Competenci

  1. First Column: Should always have the word “COMPETENCY_MAP” in upper case.
  2. Second Column: Name of the Family that the Job Role associated to the given competency belongs to.
  3. Third Column: Name of the Job Role that this Competency belongs to.
  4. Fourth and Fifth Column: Competency Library and Category.
  5. Sixth Column: Name of the Competency being mapped.
  6. Seventh and Eighth Column: Expected Rating and Weight %. If this is left as blank, system will use 0% value as default.

Below is a sample of how a simple file for mapping competencies to a role would look like.
