SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to Manage Permission Role 
  • Search for the role OnboardingExternalUser
  • Scroll down to the Target Population
  • If the target population was set to "Role Granted User (Self)" earlier, it will remain blank or the following error is shown : Error/Warning "SELF is no longer a valid filter. Please update the selection and save your change"


  • The Target Population was removed after the 2105 release


This was a known defect and the Engineering Team have fixed the issue. 

  • However, as per the new release you can now set permission group for the external user target population based on the granted users department, division, and location in Role-Based Permissions.
  • The feature gives the logged-in user the flexibility to view new hires in the Onboarding dashboard that belongs only to their department, division, or location.
  • To use the feature, configure the following:
  1. Create a Permission Group.
  2. Create a role and grant the role to target with department, division, or location.
  3. Select target from the Target population of dropdown.
