What is a RBP Static Permission Group?

On SuccessFactors Permission Groups, we have one type of permission group that is designed to manually add users to the group on bigger quantity.

It is possible to create the same on Dynamic Group using username as filter on the group definition, though when the number of users becomes large, the performance for group maintenance and refreshing might be slow.

Admins are able to create static permission group via import function, which will not refresh when user information changes, since the group stores a static list of users instead of dynamic criteria. It is also allowed to view the members of the group and use the same as RBP target group.

How to identify a RBP Static Permission Group?

  1. Go to Admin Center;
  2. Go to Set User Permissions and then select Manage Permission Groups;
  3. In this page there is a column (Static or Dynamic) which indicates whether a group is dynamic or static.

There is no schedule job for Static Permission Group import, if you consider this an important feature.

What should be the file encoding for the import? 

The file the character encoding should be Unicode(UTF-8).

Is there a maximum file size for the import? 

  • The max file size is 20MB;
  • If the import file exceeds 20MB, you would need to separate the file into several smaller files or request Professional Service to modify the system configuration file;

If any of the features above you consider that need to be enhancement or developed, we would like to invite you to raise an enhancement request as referred on this KBA 2090228.
