2945878 - WfRequestStep approverType returns DYNAMIC_GROUP. Is it possible to query more information about the approvers?

Symptom

  • When querying a workflow step that is configured to be approved by a dynamic group, the approver type returned is DYNAMIC_GROUP;
  • You want to retrieve more information about the group (such as group name and members).

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
    • OData API

Resolution

Currently, this feature is not supported. It is not possible to know which group was assigned to a workflow step and obtain more information about it via API.

Nevertheless, you can access the “Influence SAP” page (http://influence.sap.com/successFactors) to see if there's already an open enhancement request to implement this feature and upvote it. If not, you can create it.

This website is reviewed by our product managers and the more impactful ideas will be implemented in future releases. Instructions can be found also in KBA 2090228 - How to submit enhancement requests for SAP SuccessFactors products.
