2343624 - Users are able to self-register although self-registration is disabled at the Item level


An Item and Class has User can Self-Register disabled but the user is still able to assign the Item to the Learning Plan


SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access Learning as a user
  2. Navigate to the Library
  3. Search for the Item
  4. The Item has "Assign to Me" even though self-registration is disabled


This is how the Learning application behaves with this setting:

  • The User can Self-Register at the Item level is to dictate the Class level default setting
  • At the Class level, the User can Self-Register is for the registration process and having the Item on the Learning Plan is not actual registration. Having the Item on the Learning Plan allows the user to see what Classes are available.


Potential workarounds to stop users self-assigning items (i.e. "Assign to me" option on the Library search):

1. Remove the workflow which controls it "Add to Learning Assignments" from the user's role

2. Remove the Item from Catalogs the user has access to
