ONB2_GOAL_TRANSFER:ExecutionException while upserting goal for process with applicant ID: com.successfactors.coengine.error.detail.COGeneralServiceException:"You do not have permission to create/edit the goal or group goal""

Cause

  • Goal Template Used for candidate activity was not configured properly with right Code.
  • Create Goal Template Code was not added in right tags

Resolution

Before you start configuring the template for goal plans, under <role-name><![CDATA[*]]></role-name> section, add the following permissions:

Sample Code:


<permission for="create">
<field-permission type="write">
<field-permission type="read">

If Create Code fals outside of <role-name><![CDATA[*]]></role-name> section,  you get this error

If these codes are added under any other tags then user will miss the permission for Goal Template.
