Share action is greyed out for some Dashboards in Report Center.

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
Report Center

Reproducing the Issue

  1. From Home drop down menu, select Reporting
  2. Search for the dashboard you want to share
  3. Click on the actions icon and try to share the dashboard> Share option is greyed out


This is an expected behavior for standard dashboards.

Standard dashboards can only be shared via RBP under "Analytics Tiles and Dashboards" section, hence the share action is greyed out in Report Center.


User must grant dashboard permission via RBP.

See KBA 2702137 - How to share standard Dashboards, which shows in detail how to perform this.

You can identify and confirm if a dashboard is of standard type by going to Manage Dashboards> Manage Standard Dashboards and YouCalc Files. Under Product column, the value shows as 'Dashboard' and under Type column> 'Standard'.
