2203893 - JDM 2.0- Allow Role Description to be populated in JDM2.0


  • Not able to add role description in JDM 2.0
  • Can add role description in JDM 1.0 or under legacy role (under Families & Roles)



SuccessFactors: Job Profile Builder

Reproducing the Issue



Current situation:


1. Role Description available in Career Development Planning or any other module is managed from Legacy Families and Roles and not via Families & Roles under 'Manage Job Profile Content'.





2. Update of legacy Roles description can only be done from the backend.



3. Clients do not have access to backend therefore cannot add/update role description by their own. They need to contact either their consultant or Support Team to update role description.


Expected Behavior:

1. Legacy Role descriptions accessible via Admin Tools


2. Allow legacy Role description to be populated from JDM1.0 or from legacy Families & Roles when JDM 2.0 is enabled.

There is already an enhancement request open for this JDM 2.0 gap. The release date of this enhancement request is not revealed yet.
